Onboard another developer to an existing project

I have a contract with an existing client and we'd like to bring on another developer. However, we haven't found the developer, yet. We were thinking of posting a job here on Upwork, but would like to keep it associated with my contract or something like that.

 

Has anyone had any real-world experience bringing on a 2nd contractor to an existing project? I do not want to sub-contract out and pay the other dev; rather, the client should pay directly to the other dev through Upwork.

 

Generally, I need to be able to approve the other dev's hours to ensure they are billing accordingly. Nope, we're not going to use the Upwork spy.

 

What do you think?

No need for you to approve their hours. The client can hire the other dev and control their hours by setting minimums. I am not sure of other ways, maybe the collab function or network function which I believe exists.

I'll be working with the other dev and making sure their hours are in line. 

 

I was asking if anyone had any real-world experience on Upwork in this scenario. Are you saying you've done this in the past?
