Official Occasions

Understanding Official Occasions Expenditures

Your larger university events, which call for food or light refreshments, undoubtedly encourage a hospitable and welcoming ambiance when groups gather to support UTSA sponsored or non-sponsored events within the community. Because these special types of hospitality-related expenses lend themselves to be present on special and dedicated occasions, the flexibility with which your funding sources are selected, should mutually align to support the university’s institutional mission. 

Some qualifying events are associated with official fundraising activities, student-oriented programs, UTSA sponsored events, etc., to help support, foster and solidify the university’s limitless collective social networks. Equally important, and provided your spending flexibility using these accounts, prudence and good judgement should also accompany what is considered best practice.
