  8. Gifts by suppliers/contractors to University officials and personnel at any time of the year are unnecessary and unacceptable, and will not improve the business relationship.

Suppliers/Contractors who insist on being generous to the University are welcome to address their gifts or inquiries about donations to the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration and the Office of the Vice President for Development.
