Increased Personnel Action Review Program

UW Oshkosh Increased Personnel Action Review (IPAR) Program

Under the guidance of the UW System 2020FWD CORE (Commitment to Operational Reform and Excellence), UW-Oshkosh is committed to use resources responsibly. We must aggressively pursue opportunities to create efficiencies an d reduce costs. The single largest expenditure by the university is personnel. The university is instituting a new program, IPAR (Increased Personnel Action Review) in an effort to evaluate positions for accountability, efficiency and operational excellence. Although personnel costs will require a more thorough review by administration, it will be the expectation that units independently seek reductions in all areas including operational costs and travel expenditures. Please review the IPAR process and form below.
