A policy may need to be deleted while pending for approval. For example, two duplicate drafts of a policy may have been pended for approval simutaneously, when only one is needed. 

Like completing an override, deleting a pending policy is a function available for Site Administrators only. 

A reminder that deleting a policy is not reversible, and the policy is permanently removed from the PolicyStat site.
