  2. Extension Guidance on Uber/Lyft/rideshare on PCard

    Nov 16, 2023

    Uber/Lyft/rideshare apps are considered to have “clickwrap” agreements. When you are ordering or creating an account online get a message like “by clicking here I agree to terms and conditions”, this is considered a clickwrap agreement and the T&Cs must first be reviewed and approved by the legal team at OSU Purchasing prior to agreeing and continuing with payment.
    From past experience we know the University cannot agree to the T&Cs of rideshare apps, so we cannot create accounts under the University’s name.

  4. Holiday Staff Appreciation Event Guidance

    Nov 15, 2023

    OSU Extension:

    We have a max budget of $60/employee, and that maximum should take into consideration other staff appreciation events individual units may have had this year. This amount is not provided by the college, but rather the max allowable to spend from local sources. It is the recommendation of Extension Operations that we limit this to event/meal costs only and do not provide gifts to employees due to the taxable reporting requirements of doing so.

  7. General Records Retention Schedule

    Sep 27, 2023

    As some offices may be moving or cleaning out, these would be ideal opportunities to reduce the amount of paper housed at local offices. Some counties may have S4 and S3 information that needs to be destroyed. Social security numbers, birth dates, copies of checks, etc. are all items we should not keep. With much of the needed backup information housed electronically, few receipts must be kept beyond the reconciliation period. Annually files should be cleaned out to lessen unnecessary accumulation of stored paper. Check here for records retention resources:
