Question details
Three social policy experts
According to your rules regarding people who are not considered a subcontractor (d) Use of staff without employment contract (“self-employed persons working for the contractor”) to perform substantially the same tasks as the staff with employment contract (“employees”), without the tasks of the self-employed persons being particular well-defined parts of the contract. Do this rule apply to the three social policy experts? (ie., they are not considered subcontractors) or should they be permanent staff members of the lead contractor.
