Revision Date:

PURPOSE:

To outline the conditions governing personal compensation for services rendered by a faculty or staff member to external governmental agencies.

REQUIRED REPORT CONCERNING SUCH SPECIAL WORK:

Every faculty or staff member (either regular or nonregular) who anticipates personal remuneration for special work for any external  governmental agency or department will submit a written statement to his/her Department Chair or supervisor covering the following points:

1. Description of the service to be rendered.

2. Statement of time required.

3. Amount of personal compensation expected.

4. Effect of such service on the individuals obligations to the University.

REQUIRED APPROVAL:

Service for personal compensation may be undertaken only after receipt of written approval from the President of the University. Compensation for such work will be approved only when the University can assert formally that the additional work involved will not interfere or conflict with the faculty or staff member's obligations to the University itself. Proposals being submitted to external sources which include personal compensation for faculty and staff that have been processed through the Office of Research, Grants and Contracts and approved by the President for submission are excluded.
