Catering

University Catering has the first right of refusal for on-campus events (catering policy)      

Catering provides linens, not Facilities

CONTRACTING OUT

Each time the vendor is used, a contract must be executed and sent to Mrs. Mason (masont@wlu.edu) - she will review and send it to General Counsel if needed

Contracts can only be made out to "Washington and Lee University"

Each vendor must have a current W-9 on file with the business office

ALCOHOL

You must be in compliance with the Alcohol Policy

If your event has alcohol and is on campus, request sober drivers and security from Quentin (becker.q@law.wlu.edu) one week prior to your event (off campus events with alcohol only require sober drivers, not security)

Sober drivers' names and phone numbers must be posted and visible at the event and one organization member must remain sober at each event

All on campus events with alcohol require noise permits from the local police station
