Pre-Tax Deduction for Parking Fees, Vanpool, and Bus Passes

Effective in January, payroll deductions for parking fees, vanpool, and bus passes will change from a post-tax deduction to a pre-tax deduction. This is a result of recent federal tax law changes. Employees who are paid monthly will see the pre-tax deduction on their paycheck dated Jan. 31. Those who are paid biweekly will see the pre-tax deduction on their paycheck dated Jan. 30. UW System is working with the Department of Employee Trust Funds (ETF) on approval and possible re-implementation of the Parking & Transit Accounts through ConnectYourCare (CYC). Information will be shared with employees as it becomes available.

Next Gen Network Discovery Sessions Invite Participants

The Next Gen Network project team needs faculty, staff (including IT staff), and students to participate in an exercise that will help UW–Madison develop a modern, business-relevant network strategy. The team wants to know how the UW community uses the network now and plans to use it in the future. The input from these sessions will be used to make decisions regarding networking projects, teams, and investments. The goal is to create a secure, contemporary campus infrastructure for UW–Madison's wired, wireless, and cloud enterprise network that will serve the university’s needs well into the future. Sessions are an hour-and-a-half long and will be offered at various campus locations in January. Registration is encouraged, but walk-ins are also welcome. Snacks will be served.
