All agencies and personnel doing procurements under DAS authority, who don't have
delegated authority to conduct the procurement themselves, must submit a form to request
our services or request an agency specific delegation. How do you know if your agency has delegated authority? Refer to OAR 125-246-0170, or check if your agency has a previously approved agency specific delegation from the state
Chief Procurement Officer. Read more in this outline of roles and responsibilities.
