Effective Date: Expiration Date: Chapters:
March 25, 2003 When Superseded 9  


The purpose of this instruction is to incorporate into Subpart 4 of Part II of Chapter 9 of the District Personnel Manual (DPM), Excepted Service, the provisions of Chapter 19 of tittle 27, Contracts and Procurement, of the District of Columbia Municipal Regulations (DCMR), as amended. Chapter 19 of title 27 was amended at 50 DCR 1531 (February 14, 2003), by adding a new § 1902, Contracting for Information Technology Services, to implement personal services contracting for information technology (IT) consultants for the Office of the Chief Technology Officer (OCTO). As adopted, these rules:

  1. Allow a contracting officer to retain an IT consultant as a personal services contractor if the consultant: (a) provides services to the OCTO; (b) is unable to be hired as a District employee because the consultant is requiring compensation that cannot be accommodated through District pay schedules; and (c) is deemed critical by the Mayor to the IT program of the OCTO; and
  1. Allow these IT consultants to exercise managerial and supervisory authority over District government employees, and to be subject to direct control or supervision by District government personnel.
