Position Control

Position Control - Departments & Programs, UW Health, Human Resources


The purpose of the Position Control Committee is to add the appropriate levels of scrutiny, accountability and oversight to our ongoing assessment of staffing needs and to ensure that UW Health continues to provide exceptional care, generate positive margins to fund facilities and equipment, and to provide the essential resources to facilitate investments in new and life-saving technology and programs.

As part of the new Position Control Committee process, each vacancy, new position and all FTE increases will need to be approved by all levels of the departmental leadership to ensure comprehensive analysis and support prior to being reviewed by the Position Control Committee. The exceptions to this are the NP, PA, CNM, Optometrist, Mental Health Clinician, Clinical Psychologist and Behavioral Health Clinician positions which currently have a rigorous review process that remain in place.
