4. Honorariums

Overall Observations

No documented evidence of a policy or procedure within the Municipality outlining the definition of, what services are eligible for, recommended rates, or required approvals for a honorarium could be provided. Currently, honorariums include payments for services and repayment of out of pocket expenses.

The Municipality should define the term honorarium, implement a policy and procedure, communicate throughout the Municipality and implement monitoring and reporting.

Quick Summary of Specific Findings

  1. Lack of honorarium policy and procedure
  2. Inconsistent form for approval of honorariums
  3. Lack of regular monitoring and reporting for honorariums
