New Honorariums and Guest Speakers Procedures

Posted on 8/29/2013 8:49:59 AM

A new procedure is being implemented in Procurement Services on September 2, 2013, that can eliminate “after the fact” transactions for honorariums and guest speaker engagements of $350 or less per engagement for your department. 

To take advantage of this new procedure, please enter a requisition for $1.00 for your department for honorariums and guest speaker services for the 2013–2014 academic year. The requisition provides Procurement Services with the authorization to create a contract for your department.

When your department receives a quote or an invoice for an honorarium or guest speaker services rendered or to be rendered, the department enters and approves a requisition for the amount of their services against the contract. The requisition can now be entered after the services are completed because a contract is in place for the desired services. This process will eliminate the delay in payment caused by an “after the fact” process.

For further information, please reference the procedures for these services on the Procurement Services website at Honorarium and Consultant/Speaker Agreements.
