Exclusive bidding Opportunities for certified ESB firms

The ESB program annually identifies contracting opportunities worth several million dollars that certified Oregon firms are encouraged to pursue.

Many of these contracting opportunities are estimated to cost less than $100,000, are not technically complex, and are relatively short in duration. Best of all, many of these projects are set aside for excusive bidding by certified ESB firms. This guarantees that you will be bidding only against other firms of the same relative size. Virtually all projects selected for exclusive bidding by ESBs are advertised on the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) system. You can access this system on the Web at: http://orpin.oregon.gov/open.dll/welcome
