As an agency of the State of New York we are subject to statute. Guidelines dictating dollar thresholds, advertising requirements and the laws that obligate these provisions can be found in   SUNY Procedure 7553

Request for catering services by Campus Dining Services requires the issuance of a purchase order by the Procurement Office, as well as the guaranteed number of guests, five (5) days prior to the event date. In order for the Procurement Office to issue a PO, campus departments must contact Campus Dining Services to request catering service for their event. Upon confirmation from Campus Dining Services, an event sheet detailing the catering service will be provided to your department. This event sheet must be submitted to the Procurement Office along with a Non-Catalog item purchase requisition in WolfMart, payable to CULINART, with the following required supporting documentation:

1. Justification for food/catering service event

2. List of attendees

3. Copy of event flyer/announcement


University departments must complete and submit a Non-Catalog form to the Procurement Office. The requisition number must be included on both the confirmed catering event sheet and required supporting documentation that is forwarded to the Procurement Office for the issuance of a State PO.

Research Foundation (RF):
