Short Term IT Staffing Contract
The IT Supplemental Staffing Provider Contract (ITS-009440) provides for short term IT staffing augmentation on an hourly basis. Instructions for agencies and vendors have changed effective March 1, 2016, as outlined below.
Effective March 1, 2016 – The previous Short Term IT Staffing Contract ITS-002441 will no longer be utilized to obtain IT supplemental staffing services. This contract is replaced by the new IT Supplemental Staffing Provider Contract (ITS-009440).
Instructions for Agencies
All IT Supplemental Staffing Program assignment requests will be submitted through the Vendor Management System (VMS) and will no longer be submitted through our website. Computer Aid, Inc. (CAI), the Managed Service Provider (MSP), is available to assist in this transition.
A completed Short Term Staffing Contract Hiring Addendum form is required for ALL Short Term IT Staffing Contract requests submitted in the VMS. The completed Staffing Contract Hiring Addendum form must be included as an attachment within the VMS requisition under the Approval/History page in the section titled “Justification Attachments.” Additional instructions can be located in the “Guide Me” Section on the VMS Homepage.
Important Note: Agencies that need to access the previous Short Term Staffing system (e.g., to obtain an SIT-1003 form to close a completed assignment) can access that information until June 30, 2016. However, no new requests can be issued through that website. All new requests must be submitted through the VMS.
If you have any questions, please contact the Contract Manager by email at Sandra.Rosser@nc.gov or by phone at (919) 754-6672 or by fax at (919) 715-8549.
Instructions for Vendors
All IT Supplemental Staffing Program requisition releases, candidate submissions, contractor time sheet entry, etc., will occur through the Vendor Management System (VMS), an Internet-enabled, web-based application. Computer Aid, Inc. (CAI) is the State’s Managed Service Provider (MSP), and CAI will utilize the VMS to manage the entire assignment workflow process.
Important Note Impacting Contract Participation: All staffing communications will continue to occur through the VMS effective March 1, 2016. Providers on the Short Term IT Staffing Contract (ITS-002441) that are not qualified under the IT Supplemental Staffing Provider Contract (ITS-009440) will cease to be eligible to receive open IT staffing notifications and submit candidates for consideration for assignments processed within the VMS.
