    You can get an Epson XGA 2200 lumens, and a Sanyo XGA 200 lumens with a free replacement lamp voucher for the same price - not such a bargain methinks

    I trust people realise that if they take this off up the "free gift" must be given to the school.

    It would be illegal for anyone employed by the local government to recieve anything of any value from a supplier / potential supplier!

    Does the include the freebie at the RM Seminars?! :-)

    I think that you can keep the items, so long as your employer knows you've got it (that may not apply to Government employees though).

    It includes anything of value. This only applies to those whose salary comes from the tax payers. The idea is that is makes sure you are making your decision based soley on the suitablity and cost of the product and now any other factor such as what you will get for it.

    Someone is going to say that it is not / rarely enfocred, and that would be true. But as the products get more and more valuable - Sat Nav is becoming popular, as are MP3 players - then I think it may be more and more common for enforcement to take place.

    So all I am saying is be aware of it - I do know of one person who was sacked by a Local Authority for "accepting a bribe" as they called it.

    I think it was a bit of an Al Capone incident in that this was a generally bad egg and this was something they could make stick but all the same.

    Basicly two ways of handling gifts school gets it and then goes on school inventory and then other is to raffle it off to all the staff. Name out of hat sort of thing.

    Area becomes les clear cut when you have relationship with supplier under two different banners for example as school and a 'non profit peer support site'

    Also don't think it is illegal as as such bit against most lea rules.

    It is, believe it or not, illegal and you can be arrested for it (although never heard of this happening).

    So, say theoretically, our school goes with a certain supplier to get all the staff basic mobile phones and the Bursar (who made the decision) receives a top or the range mobile phone - would that be frowned upon?

    I am no expert, but I guess it depends on whether the Bursar knew they were getting the phone before they made the deal, and whether the phone is now personal or school property.

    They knew the phone they would get. Wether it's used for personal or work matters well, non of SMTs numbers are on the other phones so it's hard to say.

    The Free gift promotion is from the projector manufacturer so if it helps I can keep the free gift

    This would normally be ok. This is an added benefit that the supplier is giving it's customer(the school). The internal distribution of the phones is the Bursar's decision.

    Now if it was to be owned by him, then it would not be right as it would be for personal gain.

    Well I guess if anyone buys these from you, and I promise never to buy from you, then you can send them all to me!
