York is required by Government legislation and York policy to follow different purchasing procedures based on the type of service. Please select the type of service that best matches your service provider.
Where services are being provided by an individual (that is self-employed, a sole proprietor, operating through an incorporated entity or other) an Independent Contractor Questionnaire (ICQ) must be completed, signed by the independent contractor and approved by Accounts Payable for each new engagement. For more information about the requirement to complete an ICQ please refer to the Employee/Employer vs. Independent Contractor Guideline.
