Innovative funding model
The OregonBuys eProcurement system is fully funded by an additional 1% Vendor Collected Administrative Fee (VCAF) collected on DAS statewide price agreements.
These VCAF costs are shared by state agencies, Oregon Cooperative Procurement Program (OrCPP) members, and vendors. The 1% fee covers deployment and use of this eProcurement tool across all state agencies. Costs integrating with any agency specific procurement or payment systems besides R*STARS and TEAMS will need to be self funded by the affected agency.
State agencies will partner with DAS in this project by providing subject matter experts to assist with business process evaluation, configuration, design, and testing. Each agency will also designate an administrator to build their organization hierarchy. Any additional project support staffing needs will need to be self funded by the agency.
