Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Implement policies and procedures that describe when, how and what type of work can be performed or augmented by consultants and/or contractors, in accordance with the organisation’s enterprisewide IT procurement policy.
  2. Require contractors to comply with the organisation’s policies and procedures (e.g., requirements for security clearance, physical and logical access control requirements, client equipment and personnel, information confidentiality requirements, and nondisclosure agreements). At the commencement of the contract, the contractor formally agrees to be bound by the organisation’s IT policies. Contractors are advised that management reserves the right to monitor and inspect all usage of IT resources, including e-mail, voice communications, and all programs and data files.
  3. Provide contractors with a clear definition of their roles and responsibilities as part of their contracts. Contractors are explicitly required to document their work to agreed-upon standards and formats.
  4. Ensure that an individual with appropriate authority within the IT function has responsibility for reviewing the contractor’s work and approving payments.
