Except in limited circumstances, NCAA legislation prohibits member institutions from employing outside consultants to work with student-athletes. There are also institutional requirements that must be met before a coach can engage the services of any outside individual. To ensure that those requirements are met while providing the opportunity for a thorough NCAA compliance review, the SDA Administration, Compliance, and Business Offices created a single, integrated outside consultant process. Those wishing to engage the services of an outside consultant to work with student-athletes must complete the Outside Consultant Request in ARMS (available here).
In addition, the coach or staff member who is using the consultant must complete the Employee-Independent Contractor Determination Checklist and the outside consultant must register as a vendor with ASU (available here).
