To streamline the process of amending approved Independent Contractor agreements, we are now utilizing ConnectCarolina instead of emailing documents to accounts payable staff, as was done previously.
Effective immediately, if you are requesting an amendment to an already approved Independent Contractor, submit the request via the Independent Contractor workflow in ConnectCarolina by following these steps:
- Create a new Independent Contractor request.
- In the description field enter the previously approved IC Form Number and a brief description of the amendment (e.g., “change service end date from 12/31/2022 to 02/28/2022”).
- Attach ONLY the original form, 708.1.1f – Independent Contractor Determination Checklist and your revised version of 708.1.1f – Independent Contractor Determination Checklist, unless the amendment requests to increase the service fee above $10,000.
- If the amendment requires increasing the service fee above $10,000, follow the steps above, and attach the following additional documents:
If you have questions on this process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
