96-14.pdf15.88 KB

A state agency may solicit donations for the agency’s gifts and grants account
as long as the agency solicits donations only from individuals, businesses,
and organizations that do not do business with the agency, are not regulated
by the agency, and are neither lobbyists nor lobbying principals. The agency
should not use solicited funds for rewarding state public officials. Consistent
with statutes administered by the Ethics Board, the agency may use solicited
funds to reward other employees for exceptional accomplishment or
outstanding performance as long as the use of such funds does not conflict
with applicable collective bargaining agreements or with statutes or rules
administered by the Department of Employment Relations.
