The iSupplier Portal is an important supply management initiative for Abt Associates. Thank you for your partnership and cooperation.
Abt Associates frequently partners with technical experts for short-term assignments. It is our policy that, when needed, we will contract for services from qualified individuals through the use of consulting agreements. A consulting agreement is entered into only after a good faith assessment is made to determine if the individual meets the definition of an independent contractor, consistent with U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines, state laws and international standards.
If you are interested in partnering with Abt Associates on current work or potential future opportunities, let us know by joining the Partner Registry or, if already registered, by updating your entry.
