UPS: New University Personnel Structure - Effective July 1, 2015

The 2011-13 biennial budget created Wisconsin Statute 36.115. This statute authorized the UW to develop two new personnel systems: one for all UW-Madison employees and one for the balance of all UW System employees.

The UW is now governed by the Board of Regents and the UW System Administration.

The implementation of the “University Personnel Systems” or UPS on July 1, 2015 is only the beginning. UPS is an opportunity to create a more stream-lined and efficient structure for how employees are recruited and appointed, what titles are used, how compensation rates are determined, how staff promote, and other personnel matters.
