Outside Agency Referral

A Hiring Officer may decide to supplement the University's regular recruitment process with the services of a commercial search and placement agency. The cost for such services is charged directly to the hiring department. Use of retained or contingent search firms should be limited to approved vendors of the University. If there is a question about a search firm’s approval status, please consult with University Procurement.

In instances where an outside agency is being used to recruit academic administrators, permission must be obtained from the Provost.
