Honorarium (HNR)

Effective Date: 7/1/2013

Purpose

Used to authorize payments of honoraria greater than $100 to associates/other individuals. (Payments of honoraria to CU employees must be processed in HRMS.) Honoraria that do not exceed $100 do not require the HNR form but must comply with all applicable university policies.
Reviewed by campus Human Resources office (or Employee Services, for international individuals) to determine whether payment should be made through the PSC or processed in HRMS.

Note: An honorarium is a token payment, or reward, made to an individual for a one-time service (e.g., a guest lecture) for which custom forbids a price to be set. To authorize payment of negotiated services to an independent contractor, use the Scope of Work (SOW) form instead of the HNR form.
