Contacts & Resources

Primary Contact

The Food Service Review Committee Chair is the primary point of contact for all questions related to food service planning and placement. The Chair coordinates and directs all inquiries to appropriate Food Service Review Committee members and offices, such as Procurement, Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Environment, Health & Safety (EHS), University Planner and others to ensure an integrated, collaborative, and transparent approach through the initial phase of the process. In addition, the Chair provides information on consulting resources to assist units with the proposal process, if requested.
