Selecting an Approved Caterer

  • Best Value
  • When selecting a caterer, departments must strive to ensure UTSA receives the best value for the catered services.

  • Review of Multiple Proposers & HUB Efforts
  • Departments should utilize reasonable efforts to review proposals from at least three of the approved caterers prior to selection of a caterer. When possible, departments should include in their review at least two catering proposals from Historically Underutilized Businesses (“HUB(s)”). Questions about the UTSA HUB Program can be directed to the HUB Program Manager at 458-6491. (ref.

  • Prior Proposal
  • Departments must secure a pricing proposal from the selected caterer prior to completion of the services. Unit prices for the actual services must not deviate from the pricing proposal. (Department-approved quantity changes are acceptable)

  • Specific HUB Requirements for Purchases over $100,000
  • Prior to proceeding with any catered service that could reasonably be expected to meet or exceed $100,000, the Department must contact UTSA's Historically Underutilized Business Manager to ensure compliance with all HUB requirements.

Approved Caterer Process

Beginning September 1, 2011, a new process for outside caterer selection and approval was implemented. A caterer may apply for permission to service UTSA at any time. Caterers must submit an Application, agree to the Terms and Conditions, and submit all requested information to Campus Services. Caterers must reapply annually. There is no cost to apply or reapply. Applicants should receive confirmation of their request within 2-3 business days.

Catering Frequently Asked Questions

  • If I plan an event and I choose not to use UTSA Dining or one of the approved caterers, can I use another caterer and if so, will there be a penalty?
    Per the policy, all departments must use UTSA Dining or select from the list of the approved caterers. No unauthorized caterers should be used. A 10% service fee applies to use of one of the approved caterers. If you use any other caterer, you will be assessed a 20% penalty and the appropriate VP may be notified.
  • What payment method is acceptable when using a caterer from the approved list?
    A purchase order should be approved and issued to the vendor prior to the event. If it is anticipated the cost will exceed $5,000, a purchase request (PB4) must be routed to the Purchasing & Distribution Services Department for order completion. For purchases of less than $5,000, Special Events ProCard may also be used to secure the caterer.
  • What is this 10% service fee being used for?
    The service fee is used to make needed facility renovations to freshen the appearance of our various food venues and directly support the needed infrastructure for possible future venues.
  • If I am on 100% grant monies or federal funds, how do I incorporate the 10% service fee?
    The service fee can't be collected on accounts funded by grants. An alternate account must be supplied to Campus Services at the time of billing. If you have questions, please contact Campus Services at 210.458.6651.
  • Who is the gatekeeper of the policy compliance and the service fee assessment, and do I include the 10% in my P.O.?
    Service fee assessments will be made by Campus Services on a monthly basis and the 10% should not be included in the P.O. All billings will detail the date of the event, the caterer, and the amount. When you are requesting bids, take into consideration the additional service fee associated with using the approved vendors as opposed to UTSA Dining. If you have questions regarding the service fee assessments, please contact the Campus Services Office at 210.458.4639.
  • How do I get a caterer approved and added to the listing?
    Caterers use the application process to become an approved caterer.
  • If I plan an event offsite, does the policy apply?
    No. The policy applies only to events on the UTSA Main, Downtown or Hemisfair Park (ITC) Campuses.
  • Can I order food and have it delivered without utilizing an approved caterer?
    If the food is being delivered, but not served by an catering employee, then the catering policy does not apply and no service fee or penalty will be assessed.
  • What if UTSA Dining is unable to do the event, will I be charged a 10% service fee if I use one of the other approved caterers?
    Yes. No exceptions.
  • What if we want to serve alcohol at our event?
    Information is available on this process at Finanical Affairs website.
