Questions about Firewall Exceptions

I have a few questions about how everyone handles firewall exceptions.  I
know everyone won't have the same settup as we do, but MSU is looking to
have a formal authorization process for exceptions.  Thanks in advance.

1.  Who manages your firewalls?  Central IT, Department IT?
2.  Do you you require approval for an exception in a firewall for a
network?
  a.  If so, who approves?
  b.  What is the approval process?
  c.  Do you use a form?
3.  What exceptions do you allow or disallow?


Again, thank you in advance for your responses.  Have a great day.
