You don't state explicitly what types of polices and who is reviewing and approving.

There are policies that should be shown to the CLO. There are policies that need to go to the Board (assuming you have one, or the Owner). There are policies that end up going to the government. And finally, there are policies that you may not have the authority to institute without a supervisor/manager's "ok".

Each needs review for a myriad of different reasons, at a minimum for clarity, grammar and punctuation.
