University personnel systems

As a part of the 2011-13 biennial budget, the University of Wisconsin System was directed to develop two distinct new personnel systems (one for all UW-Madison employees and one for all other UW System employees).

On April 23, 2014, the state Legislature's Joint Committee on Employment Relations (JCOER) approved the new personnel systems for UW System and UW-Madison. These new personnel systems are required by legislation and will be effective on July 1, 2015.

For more information on the topic of the University Personnel System, please visit the UW System's webpage. This webpage includes a wealth of information, including the goals of the new systems, the members of the committees and work groups, an FAQ, a timeline, and more.
