Ethics question

Postby coolpmp69 Thu Mar 05, 2015 5:56 pm

A project manager from a buyer organization is invited to lunch by the manager of a seller organization. The project manager's organization does not permit receipt of gifts from vendors. The project manager should:
a Go out for lunch and refrain from informing his / her managers about the lunch.
b Avoid going out to lunch with anyone from the seller organization.
c Insist on paying for his / her lunch.
d Permit the manager from the seller organization pay for his / her lunch since it has a very small value.

Receipt of Gift is not permitted, networking is not an issue, going on lunch and taking your own bill is OK.
Situation could have been different if buyer was in process of selecting a potential seller which is not mentioned in this question

One more confusing one :

You are the Project Manager of a large IT project. A manager from a company contracted to work on the project offers you free tickets to a local sporting event. The tickets are expensive but your organization has no formal policy regarding gifts. What is the BEST way to handle the offer?
a Refuse the tickets and report the offer to your employer.
b Accept the tickets but notify your employer.
c Politely refuse the tickets.
d Accept the tickets since there is no policy.

the correct answer is C and why not A?
