1.3 Caterers are not generally added to the list except at the end of the 5-year contract cycle. Secondary caterers are pre-selected through a Request for Proposal process approximately every five years. Catering providers are limited in order to insure safe, high-quality products and services are available for a wide variety of campus needs.
2.0 Additional Policies
2.1 Payment for catering services through Georgia Tech Accounts Payable will be authorized only for approved catering service providers.
2.2 Building Managers have the authority to prescribe the level of service and any special stipulations required in their building.
2.3 Event sponsors retain the responsibility to provide furniture, power and adequate lighting of facilities in which catered events are held.
2.4 Caterers will be responsible for timely and appropriate set-up and restoration of the area (cleaning and sanitation of the area, furniture rearrangement, removal of equipment, trash removal and repair of any facility damage caused by the Caterer).
2.5 Cookouts are not permitted, even when costs are below the $300 threshold, as cooking raw food requires an approved caterer with appropriate food service permit, insurance and licenses.
3.1 In rare cases when the primary and secondary catering services cannot meet the needs of an event, a request for exception can be made by completing the Catering Services Exception Form, attaching the contract and menu and returning this to the Point of contact listed below at least 3 weeks prior to the date of the event. As exceptions require significant administrative effort to enact, approval will only be granted in extraordinary cases.
3.2 Donated Food - In cases when a licensed food service provider or retailer has agreed to donate prepared food for an event, the Catering Services Exception Form must be completed and returned to the Point of Contact listed below at least 3 weeks prior to an event. Donors may still be required to provide supplemental insurance and/or other documentation to insure proper assessment of risk and liability.
