A Consultant is defined as a firm or individual with whom a Consultant Services Contract is entered into for a specialized type of service. Honoraria and human study subjects are exempt from this policy.
With certain exceptions consultant services must be processed through the Purchasing Office for any dollar amount. The Purchasing Office has developed, in accordance with federal procurement guidelines, procedures both for obtaining consultant services and for processing payments after the services are satisfactorily completed. For more information, refer to the Purchasing Department website.
