The University requires catering services for student and staff facing events on campus. Catering in this instance refers to the provision of food and beverages for meetings and functions, including breakfasts, lunches, morning and afternoon teas and cocktail or finger food. The University would like to partner with a combination of large catering companies that can incorporate variety, sustainability and a wide range of customer requirements into their offerings and also to establish a sub-panel of specialised catering service providers (eg catering companies who specialise in cultural and dietary requirements eg Maori, Pasifika, Vegan).

A core focus of the University’s procurement process is to seek opportunity to derive social, economic and environmental benefit. UC has been recognised by the Fair Trade Association of Australia and New Zealand as a Fair Trade University. We received our accreditation in July 2017, and as a university community we are incredibly proud of this achievement. Catering services on campus must support Fair Trade and ethical sourcing.

The following is not included in the scope of this proposal: Large scale events, silver service requirements, alcohol and off-campus catering.

There will be no commitment to volume.
