Upcoming Technical/Engineering Trainings

ODOT Procurement Training

ODOT is opening some of our classroom training to local agency staff.  These courses were designed to provide detailed instruction to ODOT staff about requirements and ODOT business practices associated with personal services contracting, especially for Architectural, Engineering, Land Surveying (A&E) and Related Services contracts.  Although some of the information is specific to ODOT business practices, most of the information is also applicable to local agencies who procure A&E and Related Services for projects that include federal funding, or their procurements that must comply with ORS 279C requirements. 

Contract Administration of Personal Services Contracts
The purpose of this training is to provide information and resources to empower staff to achieve successful outcomes with contracts they administer while complying with procurement regulations and ODOT business practices.

Date: January 22, 2014 (8:30 am - 5:00 pm)
Course cost: No Fee
Location: Salem
Statement of Work for Personal Services Contracts

The training includes general information about Statement of Work, an overview of the Statement of Work development process, legal requirements, assessing risk and guidelines for mitigating risk in a Statement of Work, and techniques and writing conventions for clear and concise contracts.
Date: October 22, 2014 (8:30 am - 3:30 pm)
