An independent consultant is an individual or organization outside the university of proven professional and technical competence who provides primarily technical or professional advice to the university in an independent contractor relationship. The end product is usually a written or oral report, study, design, or set of recommendations. Consultants are vendors who provide professional services over which the University has neither the right to control the manner of performance nor the results of the service. No purchasing action is required with consultants. These services should be obtained on an Independent Consultant Agreement form through the Business Contracts Office (UCD P&PM 380-70).
