How To Use an Approved Caterer

To use an Approved Caterer, take the following steps:

Step 1: Ensure your preferred caterer is a Mason Approved Caterer.
Check the current list of Mason Approved Caterers. If your preferred caterer is on the list, go to step 2. If they are not on the list you have two options:

  • Option 1: Utilize the services of an Approved Caterer already on the list.
  • Option 2: Encourage your preferred caterer to go through the Become an Approved Caterer Process. Note this process may take up to two weeks. If your event is less than two weeks away, please consider option 1.

Step 2: Complete Fiscal Services’ Food and Beverage process.

Questions? All questions regarding the Approved Catering process should be directed to Operations & Business Services at 703-993-2840 or aeappcat@gmu.edu.
