In accordance with Public Service Commission (PSC) Directive 22/09 Gifts and Benefits, the Department is required to record all gifts and benefits received by employees in excess of $150, and to publish this information under the Right to Information regime within 10 calendar days of the end of each quarter. Information on gifts received by school employees is only available annually and will be included in the register for the June Quarter.
The department's policy FNM-PR-022: Receipt of Gifts and benefits by Employees outlines the issues and risks associated with an employee accepting a gift or benefit that affects or is likely to affect the performance of their official duties.
The policy also describes the steps that should be followed when any gift or benefit, including hospitality, with a fair market value of more than $150 is offered or received.
