The Short-term Office Service is designed to aid departments seeking clerical employees for short-term employment.  Short-term employment is defined as four weeks of service or less, but can be used for up to 900 hours.  The hourly rates for S.O.S. personnel vary depending on the skills required by the user department.


A monthly itemized department statement of charges is sent to the fiscal officer of each account that has utilized S.O.S. services during the previous month.
