I need a better understanding of what the "problem" is or what you're really

When you say "proposed tasks," who proposed it? Your manager, another
manager, you?

Do the initiators think they need someone to proofread? Have they requested
that you do this? Do you need to sell them on your services?

Do you have time to keep up with this daily task?

Is it as simple as getting you on the distribution list so that you are
informed when a procedure is ready?

Is there enough time in the document development cycle between the initiator
saying "I'm done with this document" and the audience needing it?
