How to Hire Temporary Staff

Important Update for Hiring Managers and SPCC holders:

The Temporary Employment Contract Instructions have been revisedPlease review them before you place your order in eVA. These new instructions will allow SPPC holders to take ownership of his/her order by entering all the information when the order is placed, which will minimize the waiting time of the preapproval. There may be some edits required after the temp staff is selected and we will work with you to ensure the applicable information is provided. Procurement Services will review and approve the order before forwarding it to the SPCC holder. Please disregard any previous version of the instructions to minimize delays and confusion. Thanks.
