Catering - Aramark is the caterer to be used in SMU, University Place, Ondine, and Meetro. A food waiver process is in place for those venues, but must be completed and submitted in a timely manner for approval. Events in other building on campus may use other caterers without requesting a food waiver. Here is the link to the food waiver form: http://www.campusdish.com/NR/rdonlyres/BD32DA60-722C-4DC5-9AE1-33AE95A29E32/0/FoodWaiver.pdf

Moving Reimbursement - There has been quite a bit of confusion around moving reimbursements in the past. HR is now working with hiring departments to make certain that moving reimbursement (if applicable) is addressed and spelled out in the employee's letter of offer. Withholding on the taxable portion of moving reimbursement can now be split out over a three month time period, as long as that time period does not cross a calendar year.
