Consultant Services to Other State Agencies
It is the responsibility of the University, which employs a faculty member
on a regular basis, to authorize in advance of actual service a faculty
member to serve as a consultant to another state agency. If a WSU faculty
member is contacted by another state agency to serve as a consultant and
if the faculty member is to be reimbursed for these services, the
following steps should be followed.
1. The WSU faculty
member through the departmental chairperson must submit a memo to the
Provost giving the name of the faculty member, dates of employment, reason
for employment, and the rate of compensation.
2. When the matter
has been approved by the Provost, the Vice President for Finance and
Administration will notify the counterpart at the state agency requesting
the services of the WSU faculty member so the requesting state agency can
initiate the appropriate paper work to pay the WSU faculty member.
Faculty members serving as a consultant for another state agency,
whether approved for reimbursement for consultant services or not, are
still expected to perform all duties and responsibilities of their
position with the University. If
serving as a consultant reduces the faculty member to less than 1.0 full
time equivalent (FTE) the faculty member may find their University
compensation to be adjusted, accordingly.
