Managing Contractors in AD

Hi

Just really looking for some feedback from IT Pro's/managers on how their companies , manage contractors on email/AD.

We currently treat them the same as normal employees, but I have been asked to look into some type of identification/separation.

Was think of having a separate OU, different SMTP and possibly setting their AD accounts to expire at the end of their contract (possibly by some email alert to a line manager)

just wanted some other thoughts

thanks

Hi,

Below is some suggestions.

1.      Create different OU.
2.      User some prefix before AD accounts i.e T_xyz somthing.
3.      Account Expiry.
4.      Enable email journaling.
5.      Block to send emails to other domain (may be exception for some).
6.      Use send limitations on emails.
7.      Create a different Security and Distribution groups.
8.      Internet usages limitations (may be exception for some).
9.      Force user to keep internet explorer history for atleast 30 days by GPO.

etc.
