Many times Texas A&M University is asked to sponsor activities or organizations by our monetary support. Various sections of the Texas constitution prohibit the giving away of the state's money or property or the use of state money or property for private reasons.
When processing payments for sponsorships, the following information must be included in your documentation:
- The purpose of the sponsorship and the benefit this provides to TAMU and the department
- How this expense relates to the purpose of the account used to pay the sponsorship
- A detailed itemization and description of the specific items that will be paid for by our sponsorship
