Systems and Procedures
A Division of The Corporate Controller's Office
EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2011
Penn State should have written agreements with individuals who are speaking or presenting at a University event – including seminars, courses and public forums. A written agreement for speakers has been authorized by University General Counsel to protect both the individual speaking and the University. Financial Officers are authorized to sign this form on behalf of the University.
Honorarium payments are now limited to $1000 or less. If payment to a visiting faculty member or other individual for speaking will exceed $1000, payment can still be made, but must be coded as a Personal/Professional Service, and the University Scholar Agreement must be completed.
For additional help in determining how to pay INDIVIDUALS for services provided to the University, see the Services Matrix .
