Gifts and Gratuities

Institute and federal policies prohibit the acceptance of personal gifts or gratuities from suppliers, vendors, subcontractors, and contractors. This includes the use of property or facilities, gift certificates, entertainment, or other favors of value extended to employees or their families.

The full text of the Institute's Procurement Policy on Gifts and Gratuities is found in MIT's Policies & Procedures Section 7.9.

Kickbacks

The federal Anti-Kickback Act of 1986, 41 U.S.C. §8701 et seq., prohibits those involved in government contracting from offering, accepting, or attempting to accept inducements for favorable treatment in awarding contracts. A "kickback" is defined as any money, fee, commission, credit, gift, gratuity, thing of value, or compensation of any kind that is provided by a supplier, directly or indirectly, to any employee for the purpose of improperly obtaining or rewarding favorable treatment in connection with procurement under a federal contract or grant.

Conflicts of Interest

MIT officers, faculty, staff, and others acting on MIT’s behalf have an obligation to avoid ethical, legal, financial, or other conflicts of interest and to ensure that their activities and interests do not conflict with their obligations to MIT or its welfare.

Learn about MIT’s equal opportunity and affirmative action programs

MIT has equal opportunity and affirmative action programs designed to give small businesses and small-business concerns owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals (minority, women, or disabled businesses) full access and opportunity to participate in MIT’s procurement activities.

To ensure proper consideration for your business, inform the VPF Strategic Sourcing team of your business size, ownership category, and the products or services you offer.
