Program Type Policies vs. Program Settings

Every program, when created, inherits its settings from the program type it belongs to. However, the program managers can override some of the settings if allowed by the program type policies.

What Are Overridable Policies

Program type policies that can be overridden by program managers are overridable policies.

  • The Financial Management policy is overridable when the Allow program manager to override the setting option is enabled.
  • The Time Management policy is always overridable.
  • The Portfolio Management policy is always overridable.
  • The Program Health policy is overridable when the Allow program manager to override the setting option is enabled.
  • The Issue/Risk Request Types policy is never overridable.

How Program Type Policies Affect Program Settings

Changing a program type policy has the following effects for existing programs of this program type:

  • When a program type policy is overridable, the changes to its policy settings do not apply to existing programs.
  • When a program type policy is not overridable, the changes to its policy settings are copied to the existing programs.
