New Required Training for All Employees on the Texas Public Information Act

Main page content

As UT System employees, all our records are covered by the Texas Public Information Act (“TPIA”). The TPIA is a state law, and it makes many of our documents and other materials available to the public. If we follow it, we stay on safe legal ground; if we don’t, we risk having monetary penalties levied against UT System Administration, or worse, criminal charges filed against our officials. To that end, the Offices of General Counsel and Human Resources ask all employees (with the exception of new hires after June 7, 2017) to complete the new TPIA training module by September 22, 2017. The training will take less than 10 minutes to complete.

To access the training, go to the Quick Links on UT4U and choose Learning Zone.  For more information please see the TPIA Compliance Training Memo and the Training Job Aid.

If you have any questions regarding the training, please feel free to contact the Office of Human Resources at (512) 499-4587.
