Relationships between the University of Wisconsin and Certain Affiliated Organizations
Report 18-4 | March 2018
In fiscal year (FY) 2016-17, UW institutions had relationships with 90 affiliated organizations, including primary fundraising foundations. From FY 2007-08 through FY 2016-17, UW institutions paid an estimated $257.9 million to affiliated organizations. In December 2017, the Board of Regents established a specific written policy governing the relationships between UW institutions and their primary fundraising foundations, but it has not established a policy governing the relationships between UW institutions and other types of affiliated organizations. To help ensure the UW System President maintains fiscal control over UW System, as is statutorily required, we make a number of recommendations for UW System Administration to increase monitoring of the relationships between UW institutions and all affiliated organizations.
