OAR 658-020-0010
Basic Policy


The OPC will contract for services when the specialized skills, knowledge, or resources are not available within the Commission; when the work cannot be done in a reasonable time with the Commission’s own work force; when it will be less expensive to contract for the work; when an independent and impartial evaluation of a situation by recognized professionals is required; or when the Commission is directed by statute to contract for services. Contracts will be let only after approval of the Commission.


Agreements for the services of a contractor who is a member of the Public Employes’ Retirement System and who is employed in another public agency usually will be by interagency agreement.


In selecting between two or more equally qualified bidders when awarding contracts, preference may be given to individuals and businesses which have prior successful experience with commodity commissions.
