Consultant agreements are written to obtain specialized knowledge or expertise when it is not available at the Frederick National Lab. These agreements directly engage the time and effort of a subcontractor, whether a person or a company.

See P&P 509: Consulting Agreements for policies and SP D501: Independent Contractor VS Employee Questionnaire for processing a Purchase Request for a consultant.

NOTE: Board meeting participants are no longer handled by a Purchase Request, but by Direct Bill instead.
