What is it?
Hospitality is defined as the provision of food, beverage, accommodation, transportation and other amenities to people who are NOT engaged to work for:
- Carleton University, or
- any Ontario government ministries or agencies covered by the OPS Travel, Meal and Hospitality Policy
Why is this important?
As a public sector body, Carleton must comply with various government legislation and guidelines around hospitality and entertainment.
For example, in accordance with the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act (BPSAA Bill 122), the inclusion of hospitality, incidentals or food expenses in a contract between the University and consultants/contractors is prohibited.
Further, under the University’s Hospitality, Entertainment and Working Meals policy, there are particular requirements to follow when submitting expenses for hospitality.
