Evaluate our independent contractor engagement, pay structure and "onboarding" processes, including analyzing proper classification, work flow, and decision making for when we add new independent contractors. Develop processes around equitable pay ranges and review our MOU (agreement). We also want to expand our reach to new individuals who have the skill set we desire in terms of providing training and technical assistance to our stakeholders.
We want to be more consistent and provide better guidance to staff when engaging new consultants. We want to ensure we follow recommended guidelines and applicable laws. We want to develop relationships with a pool of consultants that will help them understand and promote our programs, deliverables and organizational values.
