CHAPTER IX

3. SERVICE BY OFFICER OR EMPLOYEE OF THE SYSTEM ON BEHALF OF A PRIVATE SUPPORT ORGANIZATION

3.1   Members of the Board of Regents or other officers or employees of the System or a Component may serve in similar management or decision making positions with a private support organization.

3.2   Officers and employees of the System or a Component may perform administrative tasks for a private support organization outside of their regular working hours. The Board of Regents by written contract may authorize officers and employees as a part of their regular duties to perform administrative tasks for a private support organization. Administrative tasks include, but are not limited to, activities such as the receiving, receipting, acknowledging, and reporting of gift funds received by the private support organization, but do not include the solicitation of funds on behalf of the private support organization.

3.3   Officers or employees whose duties routinely include the solicitation of funds on behalf of a Component may solicit funds on behalf of a private support organization if such practice is approved by the Board of Regents and made the subject of written contract between the Board of Regents and the private support organization.

3.4    Officers or employees whose duties do not routinely include the solicitation of funds on behalf of the Component may solicit funds on behalf of a private support organization outside of regular working hours. The Board of Regents by written contract may authorize such officers and employees as a part of their regular duties to solicit funds on behalf of the private support foundation.

3.5     Any member of the Board of Regents, or officers or employees of the System or a Component serving in a management or decision making position with a private support organization, or rendering services of any kind whatsoever to a private support organization, shall receive no salary or benefit for such service from the private support organization unless the receipt of such salary or benefit is approved by the Board of Regents, provided however that the reimbursement by a support foundation of the actual travel, lodging, and other expenses incurred by an individual while rendering such service does not require approval by the Board of Regents.

3.6    The Chancellor shall be an ex officio member of any systemwide private support foundation seeking affiliation with the System under this Chapter.
