MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Security concerns have been raised about the payroll and benefit computer system for University of Wisconsin employees.
The Legislative Audit Bureau said Tuesday that the centralized system which began in 2011 is at risk for security breaches -- and it could lead to unauthorized payments.
The non-partisan auditors recommended that the UW boost its security, and improve the operation of its payroll and benefit system.
The Republican co-chairs of the Legislature's Joint Audit Committee say there still needs to be continued oversight.
The UW issued a response to the new audit, saying they remain committed to improving the payroll and benefit system.
Earlier, state auditors discovered that the system caused the UW to overpay $33 million to its employees for pensions and health benefits from 2011 until last year.
