The Michigan Daily - michigandaily.cam
On 2009 ticket form, no line for employees
to agree to NCAA ticket distribution rules
From Page 1A
violations, University spokesman
Rick Fitzgerald said in a recent
"There were no violations,"
Fitzgerald said. "(The memo) was
in response to what is a routine
annual audit that the University
Audits does in Athletics. It was a
follow up to that routine audit."
The memo - written by Carol
Senneff, executive director of Uni-
versity Audits, Senior Audit Man-
ager Jennifer Vitale and Senior
Auditors Lisa Beymer and Megan
Mackson - states that tickets for
individual games were erroneously
excluded from employees' taxable
"Presently, the value of season
tickets provided to staff members
is included in an employee's taxable
earnings," the memo stated. "Tick-
ets for individual games, how-
ever, are not included. University
Audits and the Tax Director have
determined that the value of these
tickets should be included with an
employee's taxable earnings."
in an e-mail to the Daily, Fitzger-
ald clarified the policy by writing
that all complimentary individual
tickets to sold out games are con-
sidered taxable earnings.
"When something is being given
away, it intrinsically does not hold
the same value as something for
which there are limited quantities
in high demand," he wrote. "Since
the value of each is significantly
different, the tax liability is as well.
So, when there are a number of
tickets, there is no value. But when
a game is sold out, the ... market
value is different."
For over 40 years, all Athletic
Department employees have had
the option of receiving compli-
mentary Michigan football or bas-
ketball tickets. Approximately 275
employees elected to receive com-
plimentary season football tickets,
while about 90 employees received
complimentary season basketball
tickets, Fitzgerald reported.
Athletic Department staff mem-
bers who don't want to get full-sea-
son basketball tickets can choose
to take part in an individual game
ticket pool, Fitzgerald wrote in
the e-mail. As a part of the pool, a
select number of tickets are given
away on a first-come-first-serve
weekly basis for all home games.
Though football tickets are com-
plimentary to all Athletic Depart-
ment employees, those who are
not on the football program's staff
and receive the tickets are required
to pay a Preferred Seating Dona-
tion - a required donation which
individuals who are interested in
purchasing select football, basket-
ball and hockey season tickets must
make for the right to purchase the
To receive the tickets, Athletic
Department employees are also
required to sign a form recogniz-
ing that their use of the tickets will
comply with University regula-
tions, Fitzgerald said.
However, the management advi-
sory memorandum identifies an
error in the form. The contract did
not include a signature line for the
employee to declare compliance
with NCAA ticket distribution reg-
"The form used to track employ-
ees who sign up for these tickets
includes an attestation statement
acknowledgingthat the employees'
use of the tickets will comply with
NCAA regulations," the memo-
randum states. "The statement
begins'with my signature, Ihereby
affirm...' However, there is no sig-
nature line included on the form.
The form should be modified so
employees can document account-
ability for their tickets."
The policy requiring employees
to sign the form is, in actuality, a
University policy - not an NCAA
policy - Fitzgerald said.
"That's an internal University
policy," Fitzgerald said. "None of
this constituted any violation of
The policy was enacted by the
University to ensure that Athletic
Department employees are not giv-
ing or sellingtheir tickets to athlet-
ic boosters or recruits, Fitzgerald
wrote in the e-mail.
"The recommendation from
University Audit to change the
form was to simply reinforce the
awareness of the ticket policy and
ensure all staff members read the
document," Fitzgerald wrote. "The
policy has always remained the
Prior to the memorandum's
release, "virtually all" of the
forms went unsigned, according
to Fitzgerald. A copy of the new
form released to the Daily which
was introduced in 2009 after the
memo was written, states that Ath-
letic Department employees can't,
in accordance with NCAA rules,
give their complimentary tickets to
student-athletes, recruits and their
family members or agents.
The form also lays out the Uni-
versity policy that prohibits the
sale of complimentary tickets. Vio-
lation of this policy, according to
the form, could result in termina-
tion of employment or loss of sea-
