The completed assignment should be 10 pages double-spaced (if you find your plan requires significantly more space, please contact me to discuss it). It is imperative that you include a cover page for your plan that describes the organization type that your plan is written for (i.e. is your plan designed for a large public hospital or for a single physician in private practice with no partners).
Use a combination of posted compliance plans for the foundation of your final compliance plan. The purpose of this assignment is to think through the necessary aspects of a compliance plan, not to re-invent the wheel. Therefore use the compliance plans that you research and read about on the threaded discussion board as your foundation for this assignment. That said, this should be a novel work. If you quote from an established compliance plan, give a citation. When at all possible, paraphrase or rephrase into your own words to help create a novel document of your own origin.
