Policies and Procedures

After a two-year effort that engaged stakeholders across campus, the UW–Madison Policy Library is live at policy.wisc.edu. The online, searchable policy library serves as the single, up-to-date resource for all university-wide policies at UW–Madison.  All of the Division of Business Services policies have been renumbered and listed in the library.

The following links will redirect you to the policy in the UW-Madison Policy Library.  Please see the DoBS Policy Library Numbers pdf to compare the old policy numbers with the new policy numbers.
