Online UCF Web Course - Gifts and Honoraria Training Now Available!

What do you know about the laws in Florida that restrict soliciting and accepting gifts and honoraria? Were you aware that UCF employees, as state employees, are subject to the Florida Code of Ethics for Public Officers and Employees (state ethics laws), which include restrictions on soliciting and accepting gifts and honoraria? Many employees have requested assistance from our office on this topic. The statutes can be quite complicated and dependent on many factors, such as:

  • Do you meet the state definition of a procurement employee?
  • Are you a state Form 1 filer?
  • Who is giving you the gift or honoraria?
  • What is the value?
  • What is the purpose?

With input from some of our compliance partners, we developed online training to help employees to identify allowable gifts and honoraria in compliance with state ethics laws and university standards, and to meet the reporting requirements to the state when accepting certain gifts and honoraria.
