The department head or supervisor is responsible for completing the following steps when procuring an individual's services, (if not covered by the chart below) before any services are performed:
- Send an Independent Contractor Questionnaire to the service provider for completion and request its return directly to you.
- After receipt, complete the Independent Contractor Checklist.
- Send both original forms to the Controller's Office along with a W-9 for new vendors. (A W-9 must always be on file; otherwise, the vendor cannot be paid.) Upon review, the Controller's Office will return a copy of the Independent Contractor checklist indicating the status determination.
