Cash Award Program

Below are the guidelines for the one-time cash awards. These one-time awards can be requested at any time throughout the year--the idea is to recognize the employee(s) as soon as possible after the completion of an extraordinary effort.

Eligibility:

Eligibility for the Exceptional Service, Exceptional Achievement, and Budget Savings awards are academic/regular non-bargaining unit individual employees and teams who meet the criteria for the award.

Exceptional Service:

To acknowledge extraordinary circumstances calling for contributions that far exceed expectations (i.e., employee who worked on an event of unprecedented magnitude, which required extraordinary time).

Exceptional Achievement:

To acknowledge major technical or administrative innovations that result in increased productivity and/or quality of operations; unusual effort to respond to unanticipated problems.

Budget Savings:

To acknowledge extraordinary contributions to work restructuring, productivity improvement or innovation that results in tangible budget savings (beyond the employee's regular job assignments).

Special Projects:

To acknowledge full-time exempt regular and academic staff who are requested by University management to work on projects which are significantly and demonstrably different in nature from their regularly assigned duties and typically in addition to those duties or, if similar in nature to regularly assigned duties, are substantively beyond the expectation of those duties normally performed within a full-time framework.

Procedure for requesting one-time cash awards:

Your request should consist of a paragraph that speaks to the role of the recipient, extent of extra effort, and impact of the achievement. Please send the request to your Director and copy Catalina Rodriguez (cjara@stanford.edu). The dollar amount of the awards are from $100 to $5000. You can of course suggest an amount, but please don't be surprised if it gets changed.
