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.
