SPP 210 Table

Before engaging services, the department representative completes the Employee/Independent Contractor Determination Checklist appropriate for ASU at the Tempe, Downtown, Polytechnic, or West campus, and submits the form to Financial Services.

Financial Services determines if a consultant/independent contractor or an employee-employer relationship exists.

If not approved, Financial Services notifies the department and refers the department to OHR for options available to employ the individual by following the section “Recruitment Alternatives” in SPP 201–01, “Recruitment/Employment.”

If approved, Financial Services signs and returns the checklist to the department representative. For clarification, it may be appropriate to further document approval justification.

The department representative prepares the appropriate payment document (PV, RX, or Request for Check) and attaches it to the checklist and the Departmental Professional Services Order (see FIN 421–01 in the Financial Services Policies and Procedures Manual). The documents are forwarded to Payables and Reimbursements.

Payables and Reimbursements reviews and approves payment processing.
