Not Qualified to Hold Public Contracts
House Bill 2895 (1999)  requires the Construction Contractors Board (CCB) to create and maintain a list of contractors and sub contractors who have been determined not to be qualified to hold or participate in any public contract for a public improvement under this law (See list of these contractors below). This list may include any corporation partnership or other business entity of which the contractor or subcontractor is an owner, shareholder or officer of the business or was an owner or officer of the business. The CCB is to provide access to the list to all public contracting agencies, contractors and subcontractors.
 
The law requires the CCB to begin an action to determine whether a contractor shall be considered qualified to hold or participate in a public contract for a public improvement when:
  1. Information is received from a public contracting agency or from any person who supplied labor or materials, and
  2. Labor and materials was related to a public contract for a public improvement, and
  3. The contractor has not made payment to persons who supplied labor or materials, and
  4. The payment was not made within 60 days when the payment was received by the contractor, and
  5. The payment was not subject of a good faith dispute as defined in ORS 279C.580.
