Prepare and Distribute a Goods & Services Vendor Package


The Goods and Services Vendor Package consists of all forms that must be completed by the vendor and participant or the designated representative, when procuring goods or services from a vendor for the  program.

Consumers will receive the Goods & Services package from their <<counselor>>.  <<The counselor>> will review each form with the participant, helping the participant to understand the purpose and how to complete each form in the package. Each participant will receive a blank Goods and Services Vendor Package with their Welcome Package.

Throughout the program consumers will receive their supply of Goods and Services vendor packages from F/EA as they request packages to hire vendors. 

F/EA is responsible for updating the Goods and Services vendor packages as applicable.  F/EA will check on a monthly basis for updates on forms.  As forms are updated, changes will be made to the vendor package.   Packages that include updated forms are sent to consumers when they request vendor packages.

Note that individual workers are rarely considered "Goods and Services Vendors."  A "Goods and Services" vendor is usually an agency, corporation, licensed non-profit or other independent contractor.

Internal Controls: 

The internal controls used by F/EA to monitor this process establish responsibility, segregate duties, document procedures and ensure independent internal verification.

The methods of internal control utilized by F/EA to distribute Worker Hire packages are:
  1. A control document is used to track checking for updated forms at least monthly.
    • Staff verifies that new forms have been looked for at relevant agency websites at least monthly
  2. The <<Staff Title>> reviews the updated Goods and Services Vendors Package prior to sending it to consumers or counselors.
