Using Agreements for Executive Recruiting & Search

The systemwide agreements are the preferred search firms to use, but the most important consideration is the right search firm for the search. New agreements can be established, with a preference to establishing multi-year blanket agreements.

TaskSteps

1.  Select object code.

Use object code 3210 Advertising/Recruitment/Procurement.

2.  Determine type of agreement.

Use the correct agreement for the search required – medical enterprise (hospital, health professional schools, UCOP medical science) or General (non-medical enterprise).

3.  Provide information on Attachment B.
  • Use Attachment B to specify the search desired, establishing the scope of work with the search firm.
  • Confirm pricing in Attachment B.
  • Identify where invoices are to be sent in Attachment B.
  • Identify the search team individuals in Attachment B.
  • No changes to agreement general terms and conditions can be made in Attachment B.
  • Because Attachment B is for scope-of-work issues, the department/internal customer can sign Attachment B for the University.

4.  Contact Campus Purchasing.

  • The department/internal customer shall communicate searches to Purchasing so that the appropriate local purchase order or blanket order release can be established for payments.
  • Preference is for Attachment B to be copied or excerpted into the purchase order or release.
