To comply with new state legislation relating to the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), a new process is now in place for contracting services from individuals outside of Miami employment. Faculty, staff or departments who wish to engage the services of an individual that is believed to meet the guidelines for an independent contractor vs. employee, must follow the steps outlined in the Procedures for an Independent Contractor document. First, a determination must be made that a department can engage an independent contractor. Additional information can be found on our Forms page, under the Administrative Forms tab.
