- Consultants for Sponsored Projects: ORSO Guideline 22
If there is a consultant written into a successful funding proposal, the award does not form a contractual relationship with the consultant. WSU must execute a contract with that consultant for their services and the deliverables they are expected to produce. Cautions:
- Avoid verbal agreements with consultants.
- Do not authorize work by consultant until the WSU personal services contract has been signed by both parties.
- One of the PI’s is typically designated “Project Manager for WSU” in the contract. This role shares some responsibilities with the Contract Manager for WSU named in the contract.
Individuals designated as contract manager in personal services contracts must complete DES contract management courses. This is a new training requirement, introduced in October 2015. Here’s a list of the courses with Skillsoft links:
