Dining Services Request for Proposals (RFP)
The university has started developing a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for the dining services program, asking multiple vendors to issue proposals to us for the administration of the Brandeis dining program beginning in July 2020. The development of the RFP will be based on the results of community-wide conversations and the input of our dining consultants at the TMC Group. We will be seeking your ideas and comments as part of this process.
