ISO 9001:2015 requires that external providers must be controlled and their performance be evaluated by your organization (since it is your organization which hires their services) but they won´t be audited by the certification body.
Regarding the extent of the controls for external providers established by your company, they must be determined by your organization, sometimes a contract which states your requirements should be enough, but in other occasions you will need to provide the external providers with documented procedures or instructions with your QMS criteria and even carry out some inspections.
