as required by the UW System Risk Management Policy and Procedure Manual
no less than two
full business days prior to the catered event.
c) If university funds are used, state purchasing procedures must be followed.
d) The UWM Guidelines contained in S-5 for the Service of Alcohol are strictly followed. [If alcoholic beverages are served at such events, Dining Services must have exclusive authority to dispense them.]
e) The university sponsor of the catered event makes
adequate arrangements for the safe and sanitary disposal of food refuse
as well as any general
clean-up that is required after the event.
f) If the facilities of either the UWM Union or Sandburg
