Small Scale Education Contracts

The Agency of Education has numerous instances annually in which the Agency has a need for qualified individuals to participate in short-duration activities. In order to compensate or reimburse expenses to individuals for these activities, the Agency may generate Small Scale Education Contracts for Services.

Each year, the Agency will recruit qualified individuals for various activity categories held throughout the year. The recruitment process will entail completing a survey and submitting a resume. As activities are planned, Agency staff will select pre-qualified individuals from the approved list. Selection of individuals will entail invitations to all qualified candidates on the list with the date, duration and description of the service opportunity. Contracts will be offered on a first-response, first-filled basis.

To be included in the FY2017 list of qualified individuals, please complete the Small Scale Contract Prequalification Survey. Also email your resume to Shelley Matz, with Small Scale Contract in the subject line.
