All honorariums are considered taxable. A request for payment of honorarium requires Procurement paperwork, submitted with Guest/Candidate Travel Form.

Contracts will no longer be required for most guest speaker arrangements, regardless of dollar value. The payment of honoraria for regular speaking engagements can be handled via purchase order, with no need for a contract, even if the payment exceeds $3,000. Contracts will still be required for guest speakers who will be performing any high-risk activities, such as demonstrations involving chemicals or hazardous materials, or the use of UConn Health clinical or lab equipment. In addition, guest speaker engagements will continue to be subject to our statutory bidding requirements.
