Working with Contractors
If there is a need to involve contractors, we define the following simple rules:
Contractors which are working directly for VSHN, where the work isn’t directly billed to customers, needs budget approval from management.
A contractor which develops something for VSHN
A contractor which supports VSHN when there is a personnel shortage
When a contractor works for a VSHN customer in VSHN’s name (subcontractor) and the work is directly paid by the customer, then it’s up to the team (domain accountable) to decide.
In general, we try to avoid this and want to do as much ourselves to preserve knowledge and keep the money at VSHN.
