There are five categories that make up the scope of services for the Temporary Employment Services awards:
- Administrative Support
- Healthcare Staffing Services
- Professional Services
- Commercial/Industrial Workers
- Information Technology Professional Services
A sourcing team of procurement professionals, led by the State of New Mexico, evaluated and awarded the contract providers. The main benefit of the cooperative contract is to obtain more favorable pricing than is obtainable by an individual state or local government entity because of the collective volume of potential purchases. The cooperative contract furthermore provides proven quality suppliers with the ability to meet the needs of the nation in a wide range and scope of services.
Among the advantages of using this contract are: cost savings, including saving money on vacation and sick pay, retirement, and other income security benefits; the option to use temporary help to ensure the candidate is the right "fit" for your organization without having to invest in a permanent position until ready; the ability to attract talent and save on training costs; enhanced multi-functionality, including having employees fill in for short or longer periods of time, depending on the need.
