State will post employee salaries, benefits and reimbursements and other state expenditures

The Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) is creating an OpenBook Wisconsin searchable website to provide the public with easy access to  state expenditures, including University of Wisconsin employee salaries, benefits and reimbursements. DOA expects to launch the site in spring 2013.

The first phase, starting soon, will include expenses such as travel payments, vendor payments and purchasing card (pcard) details. Employee salary and fringe benefits expenditures will be posted in the second phase. The third phase will include grants, other capital projects and VendorNet contracts.

The website will not post the Social Security number, home address or home telephone number of any employee. Fringe benefits data will be provided in total, rather than listed by individual employees, to protect confidentiality in your health care plan.

Steve Wildeck, vice chancellor for administration and finance for UW Colleges and UW-Extension, emailed details in a March 7, 2013, message to UW Colleges and UW-Extension employees. If you have questions regarding OpenBook Wisconsin, contact  him at, Colleen Godfriaux at (UW Colleges employees) or Mark Dorn at (UW-Extension employees). Contact your human resources director if you are concerned that your safety may be jeopardized by the inclusion of your name on the website.

When the state announces that the site is live, we will post the URL and share a link through News & Ideas.
