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.
