User’s Group Meeting, November 19, 2008
The Purchasing, Contracts & Payment Services User’s Group meetings were held on November 19th at Health Sciences and the NRCCE. Phil Charneskie welcomed those in attendance. He introduced Purchasing, Contracts & Payment Service’s current intern Shannon Wicks. He spoke briefly about WVU’s Hospitality rules. Hospitality funds are to be used when hosting out of town guests, such as candidates for positions, speakers or other guests, or State government visitors. These funds are not to be used for WVU employee lunches, not even if you are hosting another department.
