Personal and Professional Services are services from an individual or firm with specialized skills, knowledge and resources not available within a department. Be aware that this excludes architectural or engineering consultant services - these types of services must utilize the construction contracting process. For information on that process, please contact Construction Contract Administration.
Although personal services contractors are hired for their specialized skills and knowledge, in some cases competition is required, as noted on our How Do I Start? page.
Signatures: Before submitting your final PSC to Procurement for review and approval, the signatures of the Department Head and Contractor must be obtained first. PSC submissions can be done via fax or through our general email as long as the document is legible, otherwise you may be asked to submit a hard copy of the PSC. Procurement will provide the final signature.
Sole Source Procurements and Contracts: If the Personal and Professional Services Contract is $25,000 or more and only one contractor holds the set of skills or expertise to do the work, review the Sole Source Procurements and Contracts information and submit the Sole Source Request Form along with the Personal and Professional Services Contract to Procurement.
