|VPCSA Forms for Student Programs|
CATERING, RESTAURANT MEALS, AND FOOD SUPPLIES
STATE SPENDING LIMITS The State of Virginia establishes per-person spending limits for meals, based on geographic area. Meal limits are inclusive, meaning the total includes tax and tip. If your event costs exceed the per-person limit, your organization will have to find alternative funding for the overages. Meal limits in Charlottesville and Albemarle County are: Breakfast - $9.00; Lunch - $13.00; and Dinner - $29.00. These limits apply equally to catering, restaurant meals, and food supplies.
If your event or program includes travel outside the Charlottesville area, you will need to know the http://www.procurement.virginia.edu/pageconus.
If not using UVA Dining Services, we recommend the University’s Contract Caterers. They are accustomed to working with student groups and are familiar with the University's business practices. If not using a contract vendor, we recommend that you seek at least two quotes to be certain you receive the best price and best product.
VPCSA can pay directly to the caterer if the award recipient can arrange for the caterer to direct bill our office. If the vendor is direct-billing AND has never previously done business with the University, then the vendor must complete an online Vendor Registration form in order to be paid. Otherwise, the award recipient must foot the bill and request reimbursement.
