Disclosure of Outside Employment
Permanent Memorandum 11 is the LSU policy that governs outside employment by LSU employees, and the methods by which they disclose such employment for administrative review and approval. The policy covers any direct employment in which economic benefit is received, including but not limited to:
- employment with any non-university employer
- contracts for consulting or other professional services, and
- self-employment or operation of a business.
PM-11 applies to all LSU faculty and staff, including those who are on summer or intersession break for any activity for which they receive compensation, including travel supplements, stipends or honoraria. This also includes any visits to foreign universities that are supported, in whole or part, by the host institution.
Disclosures are reviewed and approved by the employee's immediate supervisor, their dean or their immediate supervisor's supervisor, and the Office of Research & Economic Development. In certain circumstances, approval of the Provost, and President may be required.
