Non-Personal Services Contracts
“Non-personal services” means the furnishing of labor, time, or effort by a contractor, not involving delivery of a specific end product other than reports which are merely incidental to the required performance. Examples might include travel agents, photographer, janitorial or window washer. It does not include employment agreements. Non-personal services can be performed by "professionals", however for procurement purposes, they are distinguished based on both the intellectual aspects and delivery of a final product. For example, a consultant is a professional service provider and a travel agent is not.
Non-personal Services Contracts are used primarily for non-personal services greater than $10,000 total dollar value.
If under $10,000 total dollar value a Short Form Contract for Miscellaneous Services may be more appropriate according to risk and other factors inherent in the nature of the services. See on on website Purchasing Policies and Procedures on Short Form Contract for Miscellaneous Services.
