Task Force on Procuring Through Small and Local Business 

The HB 2667 Task Force adopted the report and concluded on August 12, 2014. 

Overview

The Task Force on Procuring Through Small and Local Business was established by HB 2667 (2013). Its directive is to:

  1. Study the extent to which contracting agencies award public contract to minority-owned, woman-owned or emerging small businesses in this state and describe and categorize the types of public contracts that contracting agencies typically award to minority-owned, woman-owned or emerging small businesses in this state;

  2. Evaluate the extent to which large procurements for goods and services, including construction services, could feasibly be broken into smaller procurements that would be within the capabilities and expertise of minority-owned, woman-owned and emerging  small businesses  in  this  state;

  3. Investigate and recommend incentives that can help to induce contracting agencies to award public contracts to minority-owned, woman-owned or emerging small businesses; and

  4. Report the results of the study the task force conducts in a manner that makes comprehensive data about public contracting awards  to minority-owned, woman-owned or emerging small businesses in this state visible, understandable and useable and that illuminates the particular impact that contracting  agencies’ public contracting practices have on: 

    • Minority-owned businesses, woman-owned businesses and emerging small businesses, each as separate categories of businesses; and
    • Specific groups of minority individuals who own small or local businesses, including but not limited to individuals who are:
      • Asian American, as described in ORS 200.005 (4)(c), or Pacific Islander;
      • Black, as described in ORS 200.005 (4)(a), or African American;
      • Hispanic, as described in ORS 200.005 (4)(b), or Latino;
      • Portuguese, as described in ORS 200.005 (4)(d);
      • American Indian or Alaskan Native, as described in ORS 200.005 (4)(e); and
      • A  member  of  another  group  that  the  Advocate  for  Minority,  Women  and  Emerging
      • Small Business has determined is socially and economically disadvantaged.


The task force shall submit a report in the manner provided by ORS 192.245, and
 may include recommendations  for  legislation,  to  an  interim  committee  of  the  Legislative
Assembly related to public contracting as appropriate no later than September 1, 2014.
