Temporary Employment Agency Guidelines


  • Temporary appointments are approved only to meet emergency, non-recurring and short-term workload needs.


  • Email the HR Service Center (hrservice@uoregon.edu) and request an authorization number. An authorization number must be requested for each temporary appointment.
  • As a state agency, UO is required to use the services of a Qualified Rehabilitation Facility (QRF) when requesting temporary services. See QRF list below. If after contacting both QRF agencies, the department is unable to secure a qualified candidate in a timely manner, the department may contact a second call temporary services agency.
  • Call a contractor and provide the following:
    • UO authorization number for each temporary job
    • Times, dates, and location of the job
    • Abilities and skills needed, job title
    • Department making the request and job supervisor name
    • At least a day or more notice for new assignments when possible
    • Be sure to give the vendor Human Resources address for billing purposes
    • Human Resources will forward invoices to departments for payment.
