In 2013, the State of Utah imposed criminal penalties related to “Gratuities and Kickbacks.” To protect our employees and organization, UIT’s policy regarding gifts and gratuities from vendors is more stringent than the State of Utah policy. This policy went into effect for all UIT employees starting on December 16, 2015.
UIT’s policy is that no UIT employee, regardless of role/title, may accept any type of gift or gratuity from vendors, regardless of the monetary value of the gift/gratuity. This means that employees must decline even small items from vendors such as toys, trinkets, pens, snacks, posters, calendars, etc.

If you have any questions about UIT’s policy, please contact your supervisor.
