Personal Services Contracts
A Professional Service Contract (PSC) is a specialized contract between OHSU and an individual or non-Federal entity used to acquire skills, knowledge, or professional expertise not normally available at the University. An Outgoing Subaward mechanism is used instead of a PSC if the entity is Federal or State, if there are Reporting Requirements, or if the use of Human Subjects will be part of the project.
