Financial Administration

PART I - Introduction and Background

The Preaudit Manual of the University of Wisconsin System has been developed to assist in the evaluation and processing of financial transactions at all levels of administration within the University of Wisconsin System.

The information presented is based on provisions and regulations governing the receipt and disbursement of funds as set forth in the Wisconsin Statutes, and policies and procedures established by the Department of Administration and the University of Wisconsin System. Appendices "A" and "B" provide statutory references and materials for preauditors. These Appendices are an important source of information for use by the preaudit staff.

NOTE: Applicable provisions in bargaining unit agreements for represented employes take precedence over this manual and all other rules and regulations. UW System Administration will issue timely information on how to apply these agreements to UW accounting transactions.
