  April 30, 2018

Status: Revised

This policy has been revised as follows:

  • Changing the University Policy chapter designation from Chapter 101 (University Policy 101.18) to Chapter 602 (UIniversity Policy 602.11).

    • Moved procedural guidance related to advance quantities of gift certificates/cards to Gift Cards/Gift Certificates, How to Pay procedures (on Financial Services website).
    • Consolidating "examples" of tangible personal property that were previously scattered throughout the document, under subsection II.A.1.
  • Increasing the reporting threshold for sympathy/congratulatory gifts to employees from $100 to $125 to account for inflation, combined with the nature of these gifts (subsection IV.A.5).
