The UC system's rules for contracting limit the UC Berkeley managers from hiring staff through outside temporary agencies. This option can be used only as a last resort and only with the approval of the Employment Manager, in the Office of Human Resources.
To obtain a waiver and to hire staff through a temporary agency, please follow the guidelines on the Human Resources website.
