17.15 Staff Remuneration for Materials: Gratuities

  1. University staff are not remunerated in any form, either directly or indirectly, including any commission, percentage, discount, or rebate for any materials sold to the University unless it has been determined by the Senior Vice President for Finance and Operations that the staff member is the sole possible supplier of item needed. This policy applies to supply of materials by members of staff member's immediate household, other than members in established businesses. Requesting departments are to prepare specifications for materials and delivery as broadly as possible in order to allow nonexclusive purchases.
  2. University staff may not accept any gift, bonus, tip, commission, or gratuity connected with, relating to, or growing out of any business transaction with the University.
  3. For policy on services, see III-17.16.
