    For institutions that allow third-party, local caterers to serve on campus (excluding the contracted dining provider), what procedures do you have in place to guarantee a reasonable commission while covering any liability concerns? Do you handle these events much like a one-time food truck request, or do you have separate agreements and processes?

    Please contact me directly with any helpful information.

    At the University of Florida, we have an "Approved Caterer" program, where local businesses sign an agreement and submit evidence of insurance. Details about our program can be found here: UF Catering
