No contract or other agreement for more than $1,000 may be entered into, renewed, or extended with any individual unless the individual certifies in writing, under penalty of perjury, that the individual is not in violation of any tax laws described in ORS 305.385 (Agencies to supply licensee and contractor lists).
A contractor who is a corporation, partnership, or who has an assumed business name shall be registered with the Oregon Secretary of State in accordance with ORS chapters 58, 60, 62, 63, 65, 67, 70, and 648. This registration is the obligation of the contractor, not the Authority.
The statutory requirements for contractors to register with the Oregon Secretary of State may be subject to a limited number of exceptions under federal law. For example, sole proprietors or national banks, when they contract with the Authority, are not subject to the registration requirement.
The contractor shall be registered at the time of the execution of the contract and thereafter.
