Furthermore, HRM managers are experiencing an unusually high volume of work, tasks and initiatives, thereby enhancing the need for external support in administering selection processes to meet critical resourcing needs.

    1.3.1. either develop a Statement of Merit Criteria (SoMC) or review the existing SoMC to support creation of a poster by HR;

    1.3.2. develop a work plan and definition of deliverables;

    1.3.3. provide advice in regards to appropriate sequencing and application of merit criteria;

    1.3.4. create a master rating guide and relevant marking grids;

    1.3.5. coordinate major document approval;

    1.3.6. develop and prepare assessment tools, guides and materials;

    1.3.7. conduct the screening of all resumes and applications resulting from the process posting;

    1.3.8. coordinate and administer all assessments virtually; and

    1.3.9. complete the marking as per assessment and rating guide and collate the end results of each process.

    1.4 Deliverables

    1.4.1. The contractor must produce all evaluation materials including but not limited to:

    1. screening questions;
    2. written evaluation material;
    3. interview and reference check questions; and
