An honorarium is a payment granted in recognition of a special service or distinguished achievement for which custom or propriety forbids any fixed business price to be set, according to UC Accounting ManualD-371-35. Generally, honoraria are paid to persons of scholarly or professional standing in conjunction with an academic activity, as described inSection 666of the Academic Personel Manual.
The authority to approve payment of honoraria up to $10,000 was delegated to me by the Chancellor inIDA 449. I am redelegating this same authority to the Associate Executive Vice Chancellor. This authority may not be further redelegated.
This delegation supersedes my April 11, 2006 delegation of authority on the same subject (IDA 421).
