Independent Contractor - Professional Services Provider
Professional Services Contractors provide occasional and temporary services for Thurston County when there is not regular staff available to perform such work. Contractors are not employees of Thurston County and must meet the eligibility requirements as established by the IRS. Contractors are not eligible to receive any employee benefits, must be responsible for their own unreimbursed business/service related expenses and must be responsible for any profit or loss associated with the service agreement.
Written contracts will be required of all professional service relationships to determine the extent of the services performed, the extent to which the contractor is available to perform services, the durations of the relationship or intended project, associated business liability coverage and fee for service structure.
All independent professional services contracts will be administered through the individual departments. Interested parties should contact those respective departments for specific information including fees, services, limitations and duration.
