Thursday, November 06, 2008Procedures for Obtaining Approvals for Consulting/Independent Contractor and Temporary Staffing Engagements
Business Services - Procurement has created a procedural website that explains how the freeze on consulting/independent contractor and temporary staffing engagements will be administered in accordance with the November 6, 2008 memorandum issued by Executive Vice President and Provost, Nikias and Senior Vice President, Dickey.
The website explains what approvals are required in order for departments to continue with existing or engage in future consultant, independent contractor, and temporary staffing arrangements. The website also provides helpful links to forms that will facilitate the approval process.
Questions about these procedures can be directed to my blog (www.usc.edu/bservices/blog) or to one of the following staff members listed below:
