All, I've been providing a colleague with a few tips about hiring contractors and firms that do all of UX and/or specific IxD tasks.
I have this list ((http://www.upassoc.org/usability_resources/jobs/key_questions.pdf ) but it is geared specifically towards hiring a usability professional.
Some general tips include:- get multiple quotes without stating the budget upfront (i.e. I need to do x... what will that cost?)- test the relationship with a small project to see if it works for both parties
- be clear about the deliverables you need and expect Questions:- can you suggest other tips?- does a list or document like the "hiring a usability professional" document exist for IxD or UX?
