That all depends on the company and how you contract with them.
The few contractors that we deal with at where I work (I'm in software development), they usually have to check their code into our TFS. There's been a few so far where they had pre-built things and they customize to our needs...but usually they either give us the source code in the end or there's some sort of piece in the contract where we have access to said source.
