General Reports

Guests: Bob Lavigna, Steve Lund, Mark Walters: HR Design Strategic Plan changes requiring statutory change would be delayed from July 2013 to July 2015 in the budget approved by the Joint Finance Committee. OHR has been reviewing the changes proposed by the work teams and identifying those that do not require statutory change and distributed a draft document on the HR Design Strategic Plan Status. They are putting together a plan for next two years as well as those changes that will be implemented July 1, 2015. ASEC stressed the need for the development of a plan to address public perception issues regarding the UW System fund balance and to inform campus when information about campus finances is being distributed. OHR will provide the maximum amount of flexibility that they can within the existing constraints. ASEC also asked about UW System plans for moving forward with the HR Design. CEBC asked ASEC what is the plan to address morale issues.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:54 p.m.
