Definitions


 

  

Policy/Procedures


The university is prohibited from using public funds for the purpose of sponsoring events, being listed as supporters in golf tournaments or supporting charitable causes. The USM Foundation also follows a policy that prohibits it from contributing to charitable organizations. This policy would not prohibit key individuals from personally attending such events or from making personal contributions, but reimbursement should be limited to the actual cost, not the charitable portion of an event.

Review


The Associate Vice President of Finance/Controller is responsible for the review of this policy every four years (or whenever circumstances require immediate review).
