SharePoint Governance Topics and Objectives

Here is the list of SharePoint Services Governance Policies and Standards objectives you will likely ancounter and need to address in your organization.


Define polices and standards governing a central SharePoint service at your organization.  By defining service policies and standards for SharePoint you avoid additional costs of maintaining redundant services and mitigate the proliferation of unmanaged content. Here are various goals that you may be required to adress with regard to SharePoint services policies and standards.

  • Provide a consistent, high-quality user experience
  • Empower customers to take full advantage of SharePoint
  • See that changes and enhancements to the service are communicated to customers
  • Confirm that access to SharePoint content is properly secured, authorized and audited
  • Ensure that content is retained in compliance with record retention guidelines
  • Insure that SharePoint operates as a highly available service
  • Define roles and responsibilities related to the operation of SharePoint

In the context of this document, a policy is a rule that all SharePoint users are expected to follow without deviation. A standard is included to encourage the consistent application of best practices. The intended audience is the owners of SharePoint sites and the users who produce and consume the content of these sites.
