Finding an individual specialist

Step 1. Research, write and publish your brief

Check the Marketplace can provide the specialist type you need, make sure you have budget approval, then write and publish your brief. When you’re ready to start, click the Create Brief button.

Step 2. Respond to seller questions

After publishing your brief, sellers may ask questions via email. You must respond to their questions by posting the question and your answer at the bottom of your brief, so all potential applicants can see the information.

Step 3. Evaluate applicants and award a contract

After your brief closes, evaluate the applicants using the criteria you set when creating the brief and award the contract to the applicant who best meets your needs and represents value for money.
