Third Party Staffing Vendors
Northwestern has Preferred Staffing Vendors that assist with providing 3rd party temps/contractors to fill a variety of roles. These vendors have been extensively vetted by HR Talent Acquisition in partnership with Purchasing and Strategic Sourcing, to ensure they meet the University criteria for providing placement services. Preferred pricing has also been established with these vendors. We strongly encourage departments and schools to use our Preferred Staffing Vendors.
Temporary worker and contractor hiring
All requests for non-student temporary workers and contractors (independent contractors and contractors through 3rd party staffing agencies) need to flow through the Position Management Process before work is performed if the expected cost of assignment is greater than $20,000. For more information visit the Position Management Process website.
