  • with a title that reflects the content of the report or paper;
  • with a Cover Sheet, which should specify what RPSC is to do with the paper (ie to consider, approve, recommend to Senate, note, discuss or comment) and if there are any resource implications. 
  • in electronic form. If a document is not available in this form then provide a hard copy;
  • documents should include the name of the author, the date of issue and page numbers.
