Special Types of Services Agreements

Guest Speakers/ Honorarium Agreements – No Agreement Required

Guest speakers and other types of honoraria recipients do not require an agreement as this is not a service contract. Use the Pitt Guest Policy in Concur to process honoraria payments. More information on the honoraria page.

However, if you desire to record speakers or retain rights to the content presented, you must document the speaker’s grant of permission and transfer of rights in writing using the Speaker/Participation Content Recording Agreement.

Professional Speaking Services Versus Honoraria

Payments to companies, professional speakers, bureaus, or any individual providing professional services may not be reimbursed using the Travel, Business Entertainment, Honoraria, and Miscellaneous Reimbursable Expense policy. Review the Guidelines for Contractual Services vs. Honoraria Payments and follow the appropriate process to submit honoraria or services payment as appropriate. Please contact a Procurement Specialist for assistance in developing a contract for your professional speaker.
