That's what the press release means:

<< CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 30, 2001--On Assignment, Inc. (Nasdaq:ASGN - news) announced today that it has retained the services of Lehman Brothers Inc. to assist in evaluating strategic options for the Company. >>

It remains to be seen to whom. I don't know why. Have to admit I was shocked.

On Assignment isn't being sold, they are just using an outside consultant to discuss business strategy.

They've done that for years..
