Packaging Placed InDesign Files

I work on projects with lots of components that we combine via book. One section is done by another department and they are often changing it until the last minute. To combat this, I've started placing their InDesign file within the large ID file for the section. Because people tend to save over things whenever they feel like it, I like to package projects at the end. However, any placed InDesign files don't package. Is there any script or workaround for this? Ideally, I'd love it to copy the placed ID and it's links while it's packaging the same files.

The link was good before you tried to package?
