How should Harvard hiring managers interact with suppliers?

The terms of DZConnex’s contract with enrolled suppliers say that DZConnex should be involved, and serve as the intermediary, in any discussion with suppliers about the needs or requirements of a Harvard hiring manager, or about potential candidates for assignment at Harvard. This is because Harvard has asked DZConneX to create and sustain a vendor-neutral, competitive sourcing environment for all requisitions.

Harvard hiring managers should not receive calls from suppliers in the program to market their services, to preview available candidates, or to discuss other job order related questions. Once a contingent worker is on assignment at Harvard, the supplier may speak to the manager about logistical issues, such as an anticipated absence.
