Consultants or Professional Service Agreements

External Consultants and/or Professional Service Providers are individuals or organizations who provide professional advice and other services to the University for a contractual fee. We collectively refer to these individuals and organizations as “consultants”.

The University has developed a Standard Professional Services Agreement that may be used by department administrators for routine consulting arrangements. Formal consulting agreements are required for all individual consulting agreements which require payments in excess of $10,000. For more information, please refer to policy 3210 Professional Services and Consulting.
