VP's office seeks comments on gifts, holidays and vehicle use
Due by April 4

Comments on the proposed policy statement 1030 “Gifts Made to the University” and proposed changes to “Holidays” Policy 3405, and “Use of University Vehicles” Policy 7780 should be sent to Vice President Julie Weaks Gutierrez’s office, Scholes Hall, or via e-mail to ubppm@unm.edu by April 4.

The proposed drafts are available to UNM faculty and staff accessing the UNM web page through UNM computers. The URL is http://www.unm.edu/~ubppm.

The proposed policy statement 1030 “Gifts Made to the University” was developed to support effective development and management of private support and compliance with Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations. The policy statement is designed to ensure private support to UNM is effectively managed in the University’s best interests; prospective donors receive proper acknowledgement; and gift reporting complies with all applicable regulations. The proposed policy statement also addresses donor rights and information, conflict of interest concerns, and fundraising programs.

Policy 3405 “Holidays” is being revised to address issues and questions that arise with flexible and part-time schedules. Policy 7780 “Use of University Vehicles” was written in 1991 and is being updated to address changes in the process for renting UNM vehicles; the procedures for vehicles purchased by/or donated to University departments; discuss the needs of branch campuses and off-site locations; describe University standards for vehicle appearance, identification, and use; and clarify licensing and training requirements.
