Entertainers, Speakers, Instructors and Consultants (“Provider”) events may require a written contract to define compensation, liability and tax responsibility.
For any non-payrolled individual who is Entertaining, Speaking, Lecturing or providing Consulting Services, for details, see the chart on website
All transactions over $5,000 require a requisition unless the department has delegated authority to do Entertainment Contracts. PIRs will not be allowed unless the payee is a non-US Resident or unless a department has delegated authority to do so. The transaction amount is based on the total compensation, i.e., fee, lodging, meal, travel, etc., regardless whether it is paid directly to the Provider or on their behalf.
Departments should be aware that there are Mandatory State Department of Administration Contracts for Consulting Services. Call Purchasing Services for more information on these Contracts.
