Should the engineer keep the gift or return it? Why? The engineer should return the gift. The gift should be returned because it is unethical and violates the rules of ethics defined in: Section II.5.b. - NSPE Code of Ethics: Engineers shall not offer, give, solicit, or receive, either directly or indirectly, any contribution to influence the award of a contract by public authority, or which may be reasonably construed by the public as having the effect or intent of influencing the awarding of a contract. They shall not offer any gift or other valuable consideration in order to secure work. They shall not pay a commission, percentage, or brokerage fee in order to secure work, except to a bona fide employee or bona fide established commercial or marketing agencies retained by them. Engineers must not accept gifts, money, or promises of future benefits from contractors or contractor's agents or from anyone else in a position to influence purchases, awards, or special treatment from these individuals. Even if the engineer would not be influenced by such gifts, the appearance of impropriety or conflict of interest would damage confidence (2016 NCEES).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
