The Agency of Education has numerous instances annually in which the Agency  has a need for qualified individuals to participate in short-duration activities.  In order to compensate or reimburse expenses to individuals for these activities, the Agency may generate Small Scale Education Contracts for Services (SSECS). These contracts will be of short duration and only one contract per individual per fiscal year. In addition, payments to individuals will not exceed $1,000 per fiscal year (exclusive of expenses).

Each year, the Agency will recruit qualified individuals for various activity categories (listed below) held throughout the year. The recruitment process will entail completing this survey and submitting a resume.  If selected, individuals must then submit a completed W-9 and proof of the required auto insurance coverage. The Agency will maintain the approved list of qualified individuals.  As activities are planned throughout the year,  Agency staff will select pre-qualified individuals from the approved list.  Selection of individuals will entail invitations to all qualified candidates on the list with the date, duration and description of the service opportunity. Contracts will be offered on a first-response, first-filled basis. 
 
Note: The required auto insurance coverage shall not be less than $250,000/$500,000 split limit coverage.
