  1. 1. Personal Service Contracts Host: Sally Molsberger Department of Purchasing
  2. 2. Definition and Policy Definition Personal service contract is described in 45A.690 as an agreement whereby an individual, firm, partnership, or corporation is to perform certain services requiring professional skill or professional judgment for a specified period of time at a price agreed upon. Policy ----Governed by University of Louisville Policy # 11.00 It is the policy of the University of Louisville to establish personal service contracts for professional services in accordance with the provisions of KRS 45A.690 – 45A.695. Examples of services that must be provided through a personal service contract include but are not limited to consultants, doctors, employee search firms, nurses, lawyers, engineers and architects. Commodities, equipment and non professional services are not to be procured via a personal service contract.
  3. 3. Employee or Independent Contractor - Determination <ul><li>When considering hiring an individual, the determination must be made whether to execute a personal service contract or to place the individual on Payroll in a temporary status. </li></ul><ul><li>Departments seeking to establish a PSC with an individual must complete the document entitled “Employee or Independent Contractor” found at: </li></ul><ul><li>http://louisville.edu/purchasing/policies/emplindepcontr.pdf </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Determination of nature of relationship as required by IRS </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Whether temporary employee or independent contractor </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relationship of worker and business must be examined </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If employer/employee relationship is indicated – department must contact Payroll and add as a temporary employee. </li></ul><ul><li>If independent contractor relationship is indicated – the department must execute a personal service contract form and forward to the Department of Purchasing. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Employee or Independent Contractor” document must be submitted to Department of Purchasing with the personal service contract. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Sub-Award or PSC – Determination (Sponsored Project ) <ul><li>When considering the establishment of a personal service contract on a sponsored project, the first determination to be made is whether or not the procurement mechanism should be a sub-award or a personal service contract. The following should assist in distinguishing between the two processes: </li></ul><ul><li>Sub-award: An agreement written under the authority of and consistent with the terms of the Prime Award (grant, contract or cooperative agreement) that transfers a portion of the research or substantive effort to another organization when such expertise is not available within the primary awardee’s institution. A sub-award should be identified at the time of proposal to the sponsoring agency and is considered fully executed once it has been signed by both parties. </li></ul><ul><li>A Sub-award is an appropriate procurement mechanism when: </li></ul><ul><li>The collaboration is substantive programmatic work which is beyond mere analytical work-for-hire normally conducted by a routine service provider. </li></ul><ul><li>The collaboration is substantial enough that the collaborating individual or organization will participate in preparation of results, publication, presentation or other collaborative participation beyond routine analytical work. </li></ul><ul><li>The collaborator will maintain control of the work to be performed under the sub-award. </li></ul><ul><li>Responsible Administrative Unit: The Office of Grants Management or Industry Contracts is </li></ul><ul><li>responsible for the preparation, signing and non-fiscal management of all sub-awards issued </li></ul><ul><li>by the University. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Judy Bristow, Director </li></ul><ul><li>of the Office of Grants Management at 852-3788 or Dave King, Director of Office of Industry </li></ul><ul><li>Contracts at 852-6543. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Sub-Award or PSC – Determination (Sponsored Project) (continued) <ul><li>Personal Service Contract: A written agreement whereby an individual, firm, partnership or corporation is to perform certain services requiring professional skill or professional judgment for an agreed upon price for a specific period of time. The agreement is for a specialized service not available through a routine service provider. The contractor requires a specialized knowledge in a particular field and often requires originality, creativity and decision-making abilities. The agreement is intellectual and professional in nature and is signed by both parties. </li></ul><ul><li>A personal service contract is an appropriate procurement mechanism when: </li></ul><ul><li>The collaboration is not substantive programmatic work, however, is beyond mere analytical work-for-hire normally conducted by a routine service provider. </li></ul><ul><li>The collaboration is not substantial enough for the collaborating individual or organization to participate in scientific design, methodology, preparation of results, publication, presentation or other collaborative participation beyond the specialized service. The individual or organization acts as an independent contractor. </li></ul><ul><li>The collaborator meets a special agency (University) need and is usually professional in nature and is normally on a short term basis. </li></ul><ul><li>Responsible Administrative Unit: The Department of Purchasing is responsible for the </li></ul><ul><li>processing of all Personal Service Contracts. Additional information may be obtained by </li></ul><ul><li>Contacting Sally Molsberger at 852-8223. </li></ul>
