For MSUE policies, the Director or the Director's designate has authority regarding their meaning and interpretation.
Modification of MSUE policies must be in writing by, or at the direction of, the Director.  The MSUE policies will be updated from time to time by, or at the direction of, the Director.  The Director retains the sole prerogative to add MSUE policies or delete MSUE policies.
