BOSO will follow Protect Purdue policy in regards to outside speakers/performers and other service providers during the 21-22 academic year. If Protect Purdue guidelines allow for outside speakers/performers and service providers, the organization must follow all BOSO contracting guidelines. Please note that any compensation amount offered must be all-inclusive. 

If you would like to pay a speaker or performer to provide services, BOSO must extend/execute a contract with the individual or group. Please contact Deirdre Ryan, for more information.

Any compensation amounts being offered to an artist/speaker/service provider must be all-inclusive. Travel for service providers cannot be paid or reimbursed by the student organization. BOSO will not process expenses for artist/speaker/service provider travel.

The BOSO office is now open. Deposits can be made in the office from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. There is also a night depository outside of the BOSO office. Checks can be picked up during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.


Uber Eats food vouchers can now be requested through BOSO. Interested organizations can request vouchers through Boilerlink by selecting the Uber Eats voucher option in the Food & Beverage section of activity planning form submissions. The organization should not open up an Uber Business account to order vouchers themselves--all orders should be done through BOSO's master account. Vouchers are intended to replace a meal that your organization might normally eat together if you were hosting an in-person event; they cannot be used as giveaways, prizes or gifts or in place of gift cards/certificates.

The only way to deposit electronically is to setup a storefront in TooCool.

The BOSO office is now open during regular business hours. P-Cards can be picked up, Mon-Fri from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
In general, if an activity planning form (APF)  is required for the type of activity or event you held, an APF fully approved by SAO is required in order to receive reimbursement for expenses. If you have questions regarding this requirement and/or whether your event/activity requires an APF, please contact SAO,
