Go Oregon!
State Economic Recovery Dollars
Go Oregon! Overview
On Feb. 5, 2009, Governor Ted Kulongoski signed Go Oregon! into law, authorizing sale of bonds to fund important capital projects at public facilities throughout Oregon.
Go Oregon! will quickly make $175 million available to pay for construction, renovation and major deferred maintenance of buildings and other facilities owned by state government, local communities, universities and community colleges. It will create badly needed jobs, reinforce existing jobs, and inject money into Oregon’s communities. By helping to “prime the pump” of the state economy, Go Oregon! will benefit everyone—businesses and wage earners alike.

State agencies are finalizing a streamlined procurement process to speed the start-up of Go Oregon! projects. If you or your company wants to bid on a Go Oregon! contract, visit the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) Web site to view the opportunities. Check back often to keep track of the latest developments.

Go Oregon! DOC Projects

As part of the “Go Oregon” economic stimulus plan, the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) will receive just under $6.7 million to fund ten agency projects. The list was developed by the Legislature in consultation with the Governor’s Office and state agencies, including DOC.
Criteria for project selection was simple: the projects needed to reach all corners of the state, invest in schools, transportation, infrastructure and deferred maintenance, and be “shovel ready” by the beginning of April. Internally, projects identified for the list had to be related to our mission and core competencies of safety and security for staff and inmates.
We are very pleased to have been included in this economic stimulus plan. We know that the projects about to be completed at our facilities will put Oregonians back to work and improve our ability to do our jobs.
Here is a rundown of DOC projects included in the “Go Oregon” economic stimulus plan:
