Administration Tone

Administration Modules

Outside of Tales, Authority Administration will seldom be the sole tone for an RPC record. More often than not, Administration Division works best as a complement to current and future RPC records. These modules will allow Authority personnel to provide grounding information to their records. As the Authority protects humanity from the unknown, these do us all a great service by keeping our feet on the ground and our minds in this reality. Personnel with ideas for new modules can contact their superiors to detail their ideas.

Office Tone

Operating as the overarching executive body for the Authority, The Board and the Offices of Administration are often the final say in matters. Written statements from some Administration Offices and The Board follow a tone of professionalism, using carefully chosen words and imposing a feeling of executive power within the Authority. However, Reports and documents originating from Administration, depending on the Office; have tones that range from strictly professional and succinct, to what will be referred to as Casual Professionalism.

"Casual Professionalism" is best described as professional speak, with a light marinade of humanity. Dry sarcasm works well within Casual Professionalism, to express disappointment or displeasure towards an event or entity. On the lightest side, you have Casual Correspondence; which would be the equivalent of emails between friends in the same department. Just make sure your manager doesn't find out, or you might just get a Strictly Professional mark on your record.

It should be noted that the following table is not meant to be strict, but more of a guide. Experimentation is the lifeblood of creativity; so an Office, such as Financial Affairs, is not necessarily completely no nonsense at all times. Effort and ability is what makes it work, not this chart.

An example of Tier 2:

Per Global Director 04, the lovely Mrs. Ferdand, formerly a researcher of memetics, is to be reclassified for her brilliant scheme in attempting to extort a Chief Archivist of OIRS. Attempting to get hush money by blackmailing a officer in charge of information retrieval and archiving with false accusations of inappropriate behavior will certainly be an interesting backstory to read for the CSD recruiters in OHR.

Here's to your sudden career change bearing fruit for our research teams in the future, Nancy.

Office and Administration Referencing

In-universe, Administration is not known as "Administration Division"; this is a meta-name for referential use by writers and community members. In-universe, if needing to refer to the entirety of Administration, "Administration" as a proper noun, or "The Presidium", will do just fine. The words Office, or Offices, when referencing ones from Administration, are considered proper nouns as well, and thus should be capitalized.

"The Suits in Administration give me nightmares.."
"Well, if you didn't try to skim money off your employees, this wouldn't be an issue Jerry."
"I don't mean the batteries, Tom. Besides, the auditors from that Office love me!"

When statements or reports originate from an Office in Administration, the Office's name will take the prominent name position. The Offices of Administration have a lot of power within the organization, and are "public" knowledge amongst nearly all of those who work for the Authority. The Office name or The Board get the subtitle line, not "Administration" or "Administration Division". An example:


Lastly, when an Office or The Board is referencing a different Office; if an acronym is being used, it will prefixed with 'O'. This is to avoid any confusion if an in-Office acronym shares the same letters. So, HR would be OHR if referenced by Financial Affairs, as to not confuse accountants who might work with Hourly Rates. Reports and statements originating from an Office generally include the 'O' prefix to alleviate the same confusion, across the entire Authority.

To the Auditors from OFA:

While we are kindred spirits for wanting all information to be correct and double checked, please note that we will not cooperate with Auditors browsing around our archives and not putting dossiers back in their correct locations. We are well aware of how the financial archives wing looks, and we do not wish to emulate that.
Failure to comply will result in you having to make appointments with the front desk to take a look at archives.

I send this in good faith. Do not disappoint me.
