Training and Course Tuition

Instructional Training Seminars offered by governmental bodies to state employees on a registration fee basis and those contractual consultant services necessary to provide the professional instructions for the seminars are exempt.  This exemption applies to commercially available training programs operated by a state agency and offered to state employees and others where the training programs are funded entirely from the registration fees collected from those programs which includes continuing education programs offered by colleges and universities.  These fees may be paid with the p-card or through buyWays using the Non Catalog Form.

Exemption #29 (Training Seminars Provided to State Employees) must be noted on the p-card purchase.  If purchasing through buyWays, Exemption #29 (Training Seminars Provided to State Employees) must be selected from the drop down under "Exemption Number" by selecting the "edit" feature on the individual line item.  

Any registration fees for participants to attend a training course that is NOT developed specifically for the participants, whether training is being conducted at end user's location or at supplier's location, is exempt.  These fees may be paid with the p-card or through buyWays using the Non Catalog Form.

Exemption #06 (Dues and Registration Fees) must be noted on the p-card purchase.  If purchasing through buyWays, Exemption #06 (Dues and Registration Fees) must be selected from the drop down under "Exemption Number" by selecting the "edit" feature on the individual line item.

Any training seminars or registrations fees for participants to attend a training course in which a consultant is hired to develop a training program SPECIFICALLY for the use of the end user does not fall under either exemption as identified above.  The development of a training program involves the procurement of consultant services; therefore, you must send through a purchase requisition in buyWays on a Non Catalog Form.
