Searching for Biennial Reports in the Wisconsin Digital Archives

2015-17 biennial reports are due in October 2017, and as they become available, these reports will be added for long-term access through the Wisconsin Digital Archives. State agencies are required under s. 15.04(1)(d) to submit to the governor and the chief clerk of each house of the legislature a biennial report on or before October 15 of each odd-numbered year. Biennial reports provide information on the performance and operations of the department or independent agency for the preceding biennium and projects goals and objectives for the upcoming biennium.

Easy access to biennial reports is available through the Wisconsin Digital Archives going back to 2001/2003 biennium. Biennial reports can be used as a way to narrow results by format. Use this Searching by Format training guide to search for ‘biennial reports’ and other format types. A complete list of format types is included in the training guide.
