Dual Employment and Payment of Consulting and Similar Fees to State Employees

The University of Texas at Austin
Executive Sponsor: Vice President for University Operations
March 15, 1978

 


 

  1. Dual Employment

Regental approval is required by law before The University may simultaneously employ an individual who holds non-elective public office or is employed by another governmental agency. Approval cannot be given unless such dual employment is of benefit to the State or is required by law and if there is conflict of interest involved.

 

  1. Payment of Consulting and Similar Fees for Specific Short-Term Assignments to Faculty and Staff of Other UT Component Institutions and to Personnel of Other State Institutions and Agencies
  1. Faculty and Staff of Other UT Component Institutions

Consulting fees and lecture fees, in addition to regularly budgeted salaries, will not be paid by UT Austin for the service of an employee of another institution of The University of Texas System (other than allowable travel reimbursement) unless it is expressly found by the President that it is in the interest of The University of Texas at Austin and the State of Texas to do otherwise. Such exceptions shall be approved in advance by the President (Authorization of Individual/Professional Services Form) as well as the president of the institution by whom consultant or lecturer is employed. Copies of both authorizations shall accompany the payment voucher.

 

  1. Personnel of Other State Institutions and Agencies

Interagency Cooperation Contracts shall be used for such situations insofar as practicable as determined by the President. If an Interagency Contract is not used such payments may be made under the provisions of Sec. II.1. above. The written prior approval of the President using an Authorization for Consulting Services form and the written approval of the chief administrative officer or agency head of the supplying institution or agency must be obtained. Copies of both of these authorizations shall accompany the payment voucher.
