Public Policy

As a concept in political science, “policy” has at least two quite distinct meanings. On the one hand, “policies” are often considered to be ways of doing things, decision rules—for example: “It is the policy of this office to handle requests in such-and-such a way.” In this sense policy would answer the questions “How do you do things around here?” and “What are your rules and procedures?” and may be called administrative policy.
