This policy does not apply to situations covered by Policy and Procedure 41.121, "Reimbursement for Official Travel and Entertainment."
This policy applies without regard to the source of the funds used to pay for the catering services, except as explicitly noted.
Catering Services will be the initial contact point for those organizing events. Although events in dining halls will be staffed by Dining Services, this policy will refer uniformly to "Catering Services," for simplicity.
Specifically, this policy provides for:
The person responsible for any event that will involve catering should contact the Catering Office in Baker University Center. Staff from that office will assist with the menu planning and will make every attempt to adhere to budgetary constraints. If catering staff are unable to accommodate the client's needs, he or she will be given a list of approved outside caterers and informed of the procedure for requesting a catering exemption. Permission to use an outside caterer will be granted only under limited and specific circumstances. (See subsection III, "Requesting a Catering Exemption," below.)
Dining hall kitchens are intended for the exclusive use of Ohio University Dining and Catering Services. Use by other groups may be granted in extraordinary circumstances. Such requests should be submitted as part of the Catering Exemption Request (see subsection III, "Requesting a Catering Exemption," below). The group using the dining hall kitchen will be required to pay for one or more Dining Services staff members to be available to supervise the food preparation, equipment use, and clean-up process.
A completed Permit to Sell/Serve Food on Campus must be submitted for all university sponsored events that have automatic exemptions under either of the first two grounds listed above.
