In order to plan an event that is in compliance with the "Food Safety" policy, food service arrangements must be made by the organizer in the following manner:
A. Employ the University Dining Services Contractor for the event; or
B. At least fifteen (15) days prior to the event, complete a Request for Exception; obtain acknowledgement and approval from the University Dining Services Contractor; and submit the form for final approval to the Coordinator of Risk Management; and
C. Employ another caterer/purveyor who meets the requirements of SCDHEC. It is the responsibility of the caterer/purveyor to fulfill the licensing requirements of SCDHEC and to obtain such licensure prior to the event. (Retail Food Establishment Permit)
In the event of use of a local SCDHEC-approved retail food establishment, the event organizer need only obtain the acknowledgement and approval of the University Dining Services Contractor and ensure that the requirements of Section VI.B. are met.
