Effective 10/1/2019 - Revised Hospitality Policy and Form

SSU has updated our hospitality policy to align with the current CSU hospitality policy. The updated policy is effective October 1, 2019 with significant changes to the requirements for the following components of hospitality:

  • The definition of the different “types” of money
  • Employee awards and morale functions
  • Employee farewell celebrations
  • Meals at employee only events
  • Student awards and prizes
The new policy can be located on the University Policies website. We are currently providing training to administrators in those departments that are heavy users. If you’re interested in attending a training, please contact Carrie Schmidt, our Accounts Payable Manager (extension x4-3315 or carrie.schmidt@sonoma.edu).

Additional FAQ information, a list of significant changes , and the hospitality training guide can be found by visiting the Accounts Payable forms section of the Financial Services website.
