    I would suggest Amazon locker installation.  We had them installed on our residential campus and the locker has reduced the work load for our student mail operation and the students like the 24/7 access for package delivery and pick-up.  It took some effort to get them installed but well worth the work.  If you want to discuss feel free to contact me. ...

In my case we had Amazon drivers and subcontractors dropping off packages in our mailroom that should have instead been delivered to offices around campus. I ended up searching for contracts Amazon had with other agencies in the state, found one for a neighboring elementary school district, and used the contact ... Read More

    Hi Mark (and all), My experience directly as a conference center professional, is to charge a commission to any approved outside catering company that is equal to the commission rate that the contract company is paying for catering invoices.  For instance, if we were getting 10% commission on all catering as per our contract with our contracted catering ...

    The campus catering is is a $5 Million dollar program and $2 million is done through Approved Caterers. So yes it does have an impact on income. The diversity of needs (ethnic) and travel distance (we are 4 campuses spread over Northern VA) makes it difficult to do all of the catering for the campus. We are just looking to recoup some of the lost income. ... Read More

    We are in the process of reviewing our policies, but currently and in general we do not allow off site caterers except when we approve an exemption. For culturally specific programs we have offered to bring in as a "consultant" someone from that culture who can assist with the preparation and creation of "authentic" recipes. This appears to be a good ... Read More
