Title: Personal Service Contracts


Personal services are those performed by a professional individual on a temporary or occasional basis, including (by way of illustration, not limitation) those provided by a doctor, dentist, attorney, architect, professional engineer, scientist, or performer of the fine arts and similar professions. Personal service contracts are not reviewed by the Division of Purchase and Contract unless the services are consulting in nature as defined elsewhere in this chapter. Care must be taken to ensure that personal service contracts are not used to circumvent personnel procedures and that the appearance of an employer-employee relationship is not created. A sole source justification is required for personal services contracts.
