Yes. If the notary has a seal, the seal must be visible on the scanned or faxed copy.

If the services are being performed outside the US, then they are exempt from this requirement. If the work is being performed in the US, please contact the Procurement Department via ServiceNow to see if the affidavit is required.

Business Services will obtain all required affidavits from vendors that are issued PO's in Workday. However, to expedite the processing of a requisition, end users may obtain the affidavits on their own and attach it to the requisition.

An e-verify affidavit is required for each purchase order where services to Georgia Tech are greater than $2,499.00 unless the procured services is under a statewide or agency contract.  E-verify affidavits for contracted services are valid for the term of the contract. 

O.C.G.A.13-10-91 allows for contractors, subcontractors, and sub-subcontractors to submit a drivers license in lieu of the affidavit if they have no employees. Please note that the drivers license must be issued by a state within the United States that verifies lawful immigration status prior to issuing the drivers license (Georgia drivers licenses are therefore acceptable).

If the "services" portion of the purchase is greater than $2499, then an affidavit is required. If the services are less than $2499 (even if the total purchase is greater than $2499), then the affidavit is not required.

Effective July 1, 2013, an E-Verify affidavit is required when any services greater than $2,499 are procured.

This is the date that the Federal Work Authorization Number was issued.

This is the number issued by the E-Verify system to the vendor when they register.
