I'm making a software form in which the user needs to specify the person from within the organization who needs to address a certain repair or other technical issue (e.g., custodian) as well as the person from an external organization who is responsible.

What is a good title for "person taking care of problem"?

I contemplated assignee, but felt that it can only refer to someone within the organization, because I can't assign someone external to a task. So perhaps that is a good title for one field, but the other (external) is still needed.
