Why two systems?

The budget bill (Act 32 of 2011) created s. 36.115, Wisconsin Statutes, that  directs the UW System Board of Regents to develop a new UW System personnel system and also directs the UW-Madison chancellor to develop a new personnel system for UW-Madison employees.  These two parallel UW systems will be “separate and distinct” from the Chapter 230 of the Wisconsin Statutes system.The development of these personnel systems is one of the flexibilities from State of Wisconsin oversight that the UW System requested in budget bill deliberations.
