KSU has a list of approved caterers that must be used when a banquet or food event is being catered. Catering means that the food is cooked and prepared, delivered, served and cleaned up by the service providers. If you want to pick up food (Costco) and bring back to the campus and serve it yourself you may go wherever you like.
Remember all food functions require a sign in sheet. Per diem rates apply even with catering $7.00, $9.00 and $20.00, to be all inclusive, linens, tip etc. KSU approved caterers use tax exempt forms and direct bill, makes it easy.
The University System of Georgia has a contract for general office supplies with OfficeMax. For paper and toner cartridges the contract is with Staples (applies to line item groups only) Mostly for larger quantities and orders.
Currently, print is exempt from bidding until December Utilize KSU print shop first, if possible (KSU Print Shop currently Under Construction) Can be reimbursed from KSU TRAC. Larger print jobs would require 3 competitive bids and provide documentation. Go with low bid that meets required specifications.
