Contract Description:

Departments may choose to work with one of the contracted search firms listed in this spreadsheet by contacting the supplier to develop a scope of work. The supplier will provide a written scope of work with a price quote for the department to sign. The department should enter a non-catalog requisition in Workday and attach the signed scope of work as documentation. (See below for instructions on entering a non-catalog requisition.)

During the search process, the supplier will work with the search committee staff person, University Human Resources, and Office of Equal Opportunity to comply with the university’s data collection requirements, policies and procedures. University Human Resources will complete background checks on candidates.

If you would like to work with a search firm that is not on the list or have questions about the process, please contact Stacy Sassman at or University Human Resources at
