The state of Oregon is getting a new eProcurement system that will be the statewide solution for all state agencies. This new tool, OregonBuys, will replace the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN).
OregonBuys is a full procure-to-pay eProcurement solution that automates procurement processes using web-based applications. This technology-enabled solution allows the state to procure goods and services at the best value.
Local governments will be able to use OregonBuys for solicitations, digital bid submissions, and online evaluations. The best part? No more manual steps and a modern online marketplace shopping experience.
Current project plans are to sunset ORPIN July 1, 2021. ORPIN’s historical information will remain available after the transition.
Early adoption at two agencies
Two state agencies, Secretary of State and Department of Forestry, have already adopted the OregonBuys system. All other remaining agencies will transition at a later time.
If you do business with Secretary of State or Department of Forestry, they may contact you to ask you to set up a vendor registration in OregonBuys. A vendor account is required if you have Intergovernmental Agreements with these agencies.
