Gifts to Outside Service Providers

The College expects that individuals performing services are compensated through the contract process and paid a fee. A gift card in lieu of payment is strictly prohibited. 

In the event a service is performed gratuitously a token of appreciation in the form of a tangible item such as a gift basket, SMC memorabilia, etc., may be given, not to exceed $100 in value (before tax). The Gift Giving & Prizes Reporting Form must accompany any request for reimbursement, or the College Procurement Card, for these items.  NOTE: A contract should be in place for services held on campus regardless if there is no payment compensation to the provider.
