Aramark Catering

If you are planning an event on campus and would like to use Cardinal Catering, contact their office directly to ask for a quote with details of the types of food/beverages you plan to have and any other relevant event details. Once you receive a quote and ensure there are sufficient funds in your student org's account to pay the amount, approve the quote and ask for an invoice. Your order must be confirmed at least 7 days before your event. When you receive an invoice, submit a purchase request on the Nest and attach the invoice.  OCA will initiate an internal transfer of funds to pay the Cardinal Catering for the invoice amount from your student organization account. Please submit this purchase request as soon as possible because a signed invoice is due at least 5 days before your event in order to initiate the transfer on time.

It is important to keep in mind that if anything changes on your order to communicate with Cardinal Catering staff as soon as possible. Cancellations must be received at least 3 days before your event otherwise your organization will still be held responsible for the charges.

If you know your organization's accounting information, go ahead and fill in the following on the catering contract before submitting, otherwise OCA will fill it in for you.
