Oregon Smart Buy
What is the Oregon "Smart Buy" Program?

"Best Practices for Leveraging the State's Purchasing Power"
Oregon "Smart Buy" is an initiative of Governor Kulongoski and state of Oregon agencies. Its purpose is to create sustainable savings for taxpayers by promoting collaboration among state agencies and institutions to effectively leverage the state´s purchasing power. Using a data-driven approach, this project will intelligently leverage Oregon´s tremendous volume purchasing power to obtain better value for goods and services that the state purchases. "Smart Buy" will also review current procurement processes and techniques used by different state agencies to identify and eliminate inefficient practices to better serve taxpayers.
