You MUST utilize only firms awarded this State contract for this service. Other suppliers can be added to this contract at any time, so if you don't see one listed, you should ask that supplier to work with the State Procurement Office (all contact info listed on the contract above) to get added to the contract.
It is also preferred that you issue a PO to the staffing firm for the amount of money you plan to spend. This will expedite payment when time comes and will ensure all Terms and Conditions are applied to the hiring.
