Request for Approval of Special Meals Instructions
The Request Form should be completed by the requesting department and provided to the Chancellor for approval at least 2 weeks prior to
the event. The Chancellor's Office will forward the approved Special Meal Request to the Business Office. The Request Form should be
accompanied with the vendor quote for review prior to being processed. If the special meal is not in compliance, the department will be
contacted to discuss how the invoice will be handled.
For College guests, only one special meal will be reimbursed at the special meal rate allowance. If multiple meals must be provided for a guest,
the subsequent meals will be reimbursed at the per diem rate for the guest only and there is no reimbursement provision for employees
attending the subsequent meal, including the host employee.
The number of employees attending the special meal should be kept at a minimum.
Submit Requisitions as normal to the Business Office in advance of the meal so the estimate can be encumbered. Once the Special Meal
Request has been approved by the Chancellor, it will be compared to the Requisition received in the Business Office.
Row:
110 Fill out input lines with all information for the Special Meal Request.
(Row 8) The purpose of the event should be thorough describing how it is in the best interest of the school and the state.
(Row 9) Events catered by SOWELA’s culinary department, The Landing, should be marked “Yes” while all other caterers should be
marked “No”
A different Purchase Requisition number should be assigned to each specific event. This request only asks for the number to be
assigned for ease of tracking, the actual requisition will be turned in to the Business Office.
Once the meal is complete, the itemized receipt ( not a credit card receipt) from the vendor and the provided signin sheet should be
provided to the Business Office.
11 Estimated cost of the event should be within reason and within PPM 49 Guidelines S1509 Special Meals.
Please calculate the cost per invited guest based upon the quoted catered price.
If the meal exceeds the state allowance (PPM 49 Pocket Guide), the overage must be paid with private or foundation funds.
Alcoholic beverages are prohibited.
