If a department is bringing in a speaker using an Honoraria payment, you will NOT need a contract. Please see How do I pay or process Honoraria? for more information.

The following conditions must be met to qualify for an Honoraria:

  • The payee is not a current UC employee nor have they been an employee within the past 2 years
  • The event is a simple speaking or training engagement and the University provides all audiovisual and other equipment
  • The speaker does not require special arrangements of any kind
  • The training is of a general nature, and not a specific skill that would require the trainer to hold a certification
