ExD has a blanket purchase order to manage creative projects for IEEE. Upon signing an estimate, you will need to supply a GL number. ExD then handles the chargeback with your finance representative via journal transfer. This expedites the project and the ability to start creative work as soon as possible.

Overall, agencies are best suited for large projects that require a suite of skill sets such as strategy development, creative design, copywriting, development, and project management. Here are some examples:

  1. You need to develop a large marketing campaign with multiple components and touchpoints, including a collateral suite, email blasts, social, web, and print.
  2. You need a one-stop-shop working together, various needs for skilled staff with copywriters, art directors, and the sourcing resources for print production.
  3. Your project requires strategic planning and research development, with expertise that can zone in on your specific need and audience.
  4. You need bandwidth for faster turnaround.

Overall, independent contractors are best fitted for smaller projects with singular needs. Here are some examples:

  1. If you need new collateral or edits to existing collateral such as ad suites, flyers, or pull-up banners
  2. Smaller-scale or one-off projects with ample turnaround time
  3. One specific or unique skill set is needed. Example: design only, copy writing only, or animated PPTs

Due to the size of the project and depending on the job cost involved you may need to secure your own PO. ExD can recommend and help manage such projects with vendors that we do not currently have a blanket agreement with, such as website projects. The ExD team will still assist in managing your project throughout all key milestones.
