UW System welcomes news of Legislative signoff on new personnel systems
UW System officials on Wednesday received approval to begin implementation of new personnel systems statewide. The new systems — known by the acronym UPS — were originally scheduled to have begun in 2013, but later delayed until July 1, 2015. “It is highly encouraging to receive this support from our legislative leaders,” said UW System President Ray Cross in a statement. “It is a message that will uplift and energize our campuses, and we now can begin implementing the new personnel systems ahead of the 2015 timeline.” He said the change will help all campuses “attract and retain world-class talent, particularly in cutting-edge research fields.” Read the full UW System statement.
