OAR 413-330-0930


A short-form contract is used by the Department only to contract with a provider who is an independent contractor.


An SOC contractor must be at least 18 years of age.


A contractor for an SOC short-form contract is selected by direct negotiations. The Department negotiates directly with the contractor who is determined to be the best able to provide the services at a reasonable price. No informal or formal contractor selection and solicitation process is required.


A nontraditional contractor is considered a traditional contractor once the total dollar amount of all contracts the individual has with the Department, regardless of funding source or purpose, exceeds $8,000 during a 12-month period. At that point, the insurance and liability coverage requirements increase. A traditional contractor is required to meet all contractual insurance requirements, including the requirement to obtain professional liability insurance, if the contractor must be licensed or accredited to do the contracted work. The 12-month period is measured from the earliest contract effective date to the latest contract end date for all contracts that the nontraditional contractor has with the Department.
