A full policy has been prepared and is currently awaiting approval by the Board of Governors. For reference purposes, below is an excerpt from this policy to guide you when determining what expenses may not be considered acceptable for claiming against your University accounts.
Entertainment Expenses are not to be charged to the University unless they are incurred in the bona fide entertainment of University visitors. Luncheons, breakfasts, dinners, parties, receptions, etc., primarily for your own faculty or staff members, are not proper charges against University funds.
Gifts, memorials and donations are personal expenses, and are not to be charged against University funds. THe Human Resources Department sends flowers on the occasion of a death in the immediate family of any staff member, thus other floral tributes by individual Faculties, Schools, or Departments must be paid for by the donors.
Any further questions regarding non-allowable expenses should be directed to the Finance Department.
