Public Contracting Code, Rules and Policies

​The Department of Administrative Services (DAS) Procurement Policy Office developed OAR 125-246 through 249, DAS Public Contracting Rules, for state agencies subject to DAS authority (Agencies). Except for those Public Contract Model Rules expressly adopted by a DAS Rule, the Public Contract Model Rules adopted by the Attorney General do not apply to DAS or these Agencies.
