Hyphens between adverbs and verbs modifying a noun


I had to type up this sentence for my boss, and I did not put in a hyphen, but his secretary did:  We know that the decision here was not made pursuant to any clearly-articulated, consistently-enforced policy.


I did not put the hyphen because I read that a description ending in -ly, no hyphen appears.  So why is this any different?  Is articulated an adjective or a verb in this case?  Someone said it was a verb.
