Executive Order No. 6 requires that agencies report information regarding Qualified Personal Services Contracts (QPSCs) to a Task Force and on their agencies' websites.

  1. The contract was approved on or after August 4, 2008;
  2. The agency believes that a majority of the costs of the contract are attributable to compensation of the contractor's personnel; and
