Questionnaires, project proposals, mailing lists…

Extension agents are often requested by representatives of other agencies to complete questionnaires, sign project proposals, supply mailing lists, and endorse programs. Agents are not free to sign documents, complete questionnaires, endorse programs, supply mailing lists or agree to devote significant blocks of time to another agency unless it is in accord with the provisions of an understanding agreed to by the Extension administration and the other agencies, in advance of the request. Therefore, agents should not automatically respond to questionnaires from other agencies and organizations without administrative clearance from the District Director.
