Search Firms under Contract with the University of Arizona

The University of Arizona has established contracts with 13 search firms, offering a range of services from full retained searches to more limited assistance developing a candidate pool. These firms represent a range of expertise and price points.

UA units may use any of these firms simply by completing a scope of work statement, including project cost, and submitting it as an attachment to the requisition/purchase order in KFS to Procurement and Contracting Services (PACS). The award of RFP L061602 greatly streamlines the process of selecting a search firm.

The University is not limited to the firms on these list. Departments may choose to use a different vendor by following standard PACS procedures. If you wish to seek competitive quotes yourself, or if the fee may be more than $100,000.00, meaning formal quotes are needed, please contact Procurement & Contracting Services at (520) 621-1747 for explanation of and assistance with the process.

For more information about these search firms, contact Lisa Gundy, on the HR Employment Team, at lisagundy@email.arizona.edu or (520) 621-7705.

Scope of Work Statement

The scope of work may take any form, but should provide the following information:

  • Anticipated dates of service
  • General description of services to be provided
  • Project milestones, if any
  • Total cost
  • Reference RFP L061602
