State Budget Bill Would Transfer State Approving Agency Out of WDVA


The Governor’s 2011-13 budget bill for the State of Wisconsin would transfer the State Approving Agency (SAA) out of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA).

Under Section 9153 of the bill, all staff and functions of the SAA would be transferred to the newly created Department of Safety and Professional Services, formerly the Department of Regulation and Licensing.

The Wisconsin State Approving Agency (SAA) evaluates, approves, and monitors academic institutions, schools, and programs.

The SAA operates under a contract with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) as part of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) and is located in Madison, Wisconsin.
