Statement on HR Design and the Proposed State Budget

The proposed state budget does not impact HR Design’s implementation dates, including the HR Design components scheduled for July 1, 2015 implementation. Further, there is no relationship between HR Design and the Governor’s proposal for the university to become a public authority. The legal authority to develop a UW-Madison personnel system was originally granted to us in the 2011-13 biennial budget and is a completely autonomous, separate initiative from the public authority proposal.
