Dear Procurementarians,

 

We’ve recently come to the realization that we are seriously running out of space in our warehouse. That’s a BIG problem for us, so we have devised a BIG solution: have a BIG sale. This sale is going to be Oregon Number specific. What the Sam Hill am I talking about? Well, read on.

 

Oregon Numbers are what we use as inventory numbers, like part numbers. Most importantly, they tell us when items arrived at our facility. The first two numbers denote the fiscal year that items were allocated to us. SO, with that, during the month of August, Oregon Numbers that start with anything other than 21- are 50% off! Why not the 21’s? Because we’re all about the FIFO (First In, First Out). The 21’s haven’t been here very long. Because it’s like, 2021.

 

         Here’s an FAQ that explains this in detail.

 

So, property beginning with a 17- is going to be 50% off?          

Yes!

 

So, property beginning with a 18- is going to be 50% off?

Yes!

 

So, property beginning with a 19- is going to be 50% off?

Yes!

 

So, property beginning with a 20- is going to be 50% off?

Yes!

 

So, property beginning with a 21- is going to be 50% off?

No!

 

 It’s easy to search for items!

 

There are a few different methods for searching items in stock. One method is to go to our database “Reuse” (click here to go to Reuse now). In the search field, type 17- to see all items with Oregon Numbers starting in 17, 18- for all items with an Oregon Number of 18, etc. If something catches your eye, simply click on the line item to open in another screen that will have additional information (Images, specific information etc.), and, oh yeah, take 50% off the price! That’s like ½ off! Of course, you’re welcome to shop the warehouse as well. The doors are open to Donee’s Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 PM for your shopping convenience (Please note: while the warehouse is not air conditioned, it is equipped with Big A…..with BIG…..with big fans, so be forewarned, they might mess up your hair. If you’re hair-challenged like me, please disregard).

 

Now for the fine print:

 

These and all items are currently available to eligible Donee’s in good standing with StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeSevicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyProgram. This sale is set to begin on Monday, August 2nd (today), and runs until COB on Tuesday, August 31st. This sale applies to all Federal Donation property in stock (excluding those items with an Oregon Number beginning with “21-“. For more information, please see FAQ above). No “Holds” will be honored during this sale, limited to stock on hand, and all items are sold on a first come-first served basis. This sale does not apply to Federal Vehicle sales, except those that are Federal Donation Property…..we don’t have any of those in stock right now, so don’t worry about it. No pushing, gouging, spitting, hitting below the belt or otherwise exhibiting any rude/crude behaviors while in the warehouse. I know y’all will behave yourselves, I just have to say. Do please observe any social distancing/mask wearing requirements currently in effect, which can be found at the top of our website www.oregonsurplus.com. Thank you.

 

 

And now for something completely different………..

 

Around the beginning of July, I sent out an email that referenced plate steel that would soon begin to arrive. Well, it’s beginning to arrive! Many pieces of heavy metal plate steel is coming in, and it’s looking for a good home. Whether that good home is temporarily covering big holes in the road or for the laser or water cutter at the local community college, these sheets are going to be less expensive than anything you’ll be able to find locally. And, we will happily load it on to your conveyance for you!

 

How are you to know the sizes and prices? Once again, Reuse! Simply go to Reuse here, and type “21-364” into the search field (21-364 is the Oregon Number, and the rest of the number is the line item number). Note: this will yield 2 pages of results. To get to the next page, click the 2 next to “Property List” towards the top of the page. You will see that there are many different sizes and thicknesses. Just click on a line item to open that items description page and a HUGE amount of information including how much it weighs, if that’s important to you.                      

 

If you have any questions at all regarding the 50% off sale, purchasing steel or basically anything having to do with anything*, please contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193 or joe.mannion@oregon.gov​or our Federal Supply Specialist Jennifer Beyer at 503-378-6046 or jennifer.beyer@oregon.gov. If you have questions regarding your agency’s current state of eligibilityness, please contact our Eligibility Specialist Carla Jeannette 503-378-2753, or carla.jeannette@oregon.govThey wouldn’t give me their home numbers. I tried, but I failed. As always, agencies and organizations need to be current and eligible to be able to take advantage of these savings. If you’re not, we may be able to fix it. We have a person, and she’s really good with this stuff.

 

*Please, don’t bring up the subject of why they lowered the compression ratio’s on 1970 and later American made muscle cars. It seems to be a sore subject, and it’s really been talked out already.

 

As always, if you know of someone that might benefit from these notifications (currently eligible government agency or nonprofit employees are my favorite), feel free to send them on to me at darren.kennedy@oregon.gov​ and we’ll be sure to get them added. Likewise, if you want to be unsubscribed from this list, just click the “Unsubscribe” button at the bottom of this page.

 

Have a great week everybody!

Colleagues -

 Just a quick note to let you know that DAS Procurement Services has temporarily disabled our online Contract Administration course.  We are working to address technical issues with how the course functions within Workday Learning and hope to have the course back-up and available soon.  

We'll update you when the course is once again available.

​Thank you!

Dear Procurementarians,


I hope this email finds you with all of your fingers and toes intact after a long Independence Day weekend.

As we continue to thaw out from the long pandemic, Surplus continues to receive more and more property all the time. Like everyone else, the federal government (where we receive all Donation property) continues to make more property available all the time. Because businesses nationwide have begun to ramp up production, there has been a shortage of shipping services, and as a result, an increase in shipping charges. Rest assured, we are always looking for the least expensive shipping options, including looking for property that’s relatively close to Salem, or selecting items that are inexpensive to ship. As a result, we’ve been able to keep shipping expenditures under control, which keeps the service charges (the prices you pay) affordable.

 

That being said, here are a few examples of items we’ve been receiving lately. Keep in mind, this is just a small sampling of what we currently have in stock. By clicking on the product picture, it will open to more details in Reuse.

​Various Hand Soaps

We’ve received several different flavors of hand soap…..bar soap, liquid scented soap, etc. We not only have your run-of-the-mill Dial hand soap, we have Dial COMPLETE Mint & Shea Butter beauty bars (I don’t know if it’s the bars that are beautiful, or if they’re supposed to make you beautiful….it says it in 3 places on the package, so they seem to be proud of it).

  

Oregon Number 21-336-02, Service Charge is $10.00 per case of 18/2-packs, 380 cases in stock

  

Then we have this “Limited Edition” Dial Candy Apple Hydrating Hand Soap from the “Seasonal Collection”:

 

 Oregon Number 21-336-03A, Service Charge $12.00 per 12 ct. 7.5 fl. oz., 435 cases in stock

Next, we have this lovely 4 pack of Dial “Foaming Hand Soap” in 4 flavors: Power Berries, Soothing White Tea, Spring Water and Fresh Pear! Fresh Pear people, are you kidding me right now???

 

 Oregon Number 21-336-03C, Service Charge $8.00 for a four pack of 7.5 fl. oz. bottles, 141 in stock

Oh look, there’s more! At this point, I really don’t know whether to eat it or wash my hands with it. This one is a 50 pack, consisting of 17-Cranberry, 17-Autumn Maple and 16- Pumpkin Spice 7.5 fl. oz. bottles of Dial Liquid Hand Soap. AND, if you buy…..well, anytime really, I’ll throw in a 2-tier display floor stand seasonal display! That’s right, NO.EXTRA.COST! You can display it all you want, you just can’t sell it.

 

Oregon Number 21-336-03B, Service Charge $40.00 for a case of 50/7.5 fl. oz. bottles, and we have 31 cases in stock

I feel so pretty right now! Last but not least, we have this Dial Silk and Orchid Body Wash…..I don’t know what this is…..is ‘Body Wash’ just a fancy name for soap?

 

Oregon Number 21-336-03D, Service Charge $15.00 per case, 6/21 fl. oz. bottles, 25 cases in stock

  

Antiseptic/antimicrobial skin cleanser

​Ah, now THIS stuff is the real deal! This is the kind of antibacterial cleanser surgeon’s use to prep for surgery. No fruity holiday smelling soaps here, this is the stuff that curls your nose hairs (I mean, if you had nose hairs….). This is Hibiclens antiseptic/antimicrobial skin cleanser. Chlorhexidine gluconate solution 4.0% w/v, 4 fl oz bottle, 48 bottles per box, and the Service Charge is $40.00. The Oregon Number is 21-299-01, and we currently have 54 cases in stock.

  

Flying Insect Trap

Okay, enough soapy items. Let’s talk about death. In particular, insect death. You’ve all seen them, the little blood suckers that ruin your nighttime outings. Well, we’re here to help. We have these Catchmaster Silentrap insect traps. They’re not zappers, and according to their website Catchmaster SilenTrap Flying Insect Trap quietly captures common flying pests on a glue board within the unit – eliminating the annoying buzz and unhygienic mess you get with typical zappers. Bulb and glue board replacements are available. So there you go. The Oregon Number on these is 21-310-01, the Service Charge is $20.00 each, and we have 30 of them in stock.

  

Cable Terminal Swager tool kit

This item is an ATI Tools (a division of Snap-On Tools) Company, Cable Terminal Swager tool kit with swaging tool and dies. Mdl: AT520JK, Ser: 1952, ST825 Series Dies, 1/16 - 1/4. I thought I knew a lot about tools, but I still don’t know what this is for (yes, I did Google it). In fact, I just completely plagiarized this entire description. But, somebody out there is going to know what it is, and they’re going to know that this a very expensive set (the federal government originally paid $10,500). The Service Charge on this is just $500, and we have 2 sets of these (the second set is DMC brand).

 

 

5 Gallon Plastic Water Jugs

Not a lot to say about these….they are 5 gallon plastic water (NOT fuel) cans. They resemble the old timey “Jerry” can that were metal and held fuel, but again, these are WATER cans. They come in a kind of yucky color, but if you need water, who cares? These sell quickly, especially during the summer months. The Oregon Number on these is 21-313-01, the Service Charge is just $5.00 each! That’s like a buck a gallon! We only have 183 of these in stock.

 

 “Army” T-Shirts

The next item is T-shirts, long sleeve and short sleeve in sizes L and XL. The word “Army” is on front and an Army insignia design is on the back. These are new in packages, are 100% Polyester, and are manufactured by Unicor. All packaged individually. The Oregon Number is 20-207-02, and the Service Charge is just $5.00 each! We only have about 1,260 of these left in stock.

           

Pneumatic Circular Saws

Hey, I know what these are (unlike the “swaging” kits above). But, I don’t know as I have ever seen pneumatic operated ones though……well, we get the unique items, that’s for sure! So these are Jepson hand dry cutter 8230N metal cutting pneumatic circular saw, Sunitec/Spiznas motor, model 51115 0020. Cutting thickness: 10 mm, Air consumption: Approx. 2 m3/min. and these are unused in their original box. Okay, I just totally plagiarized this description again….I must be getting lazy. The Oregon Number is 21-311-01, the Service Charge is $300 each, and we currently have 21 of these on hand.

                    

 Rope Ladders

These ladders are stainless steel cable construction, with nylon coated steps and quick links at both ends.  The tag on these states a max weight capacity is 2,200# (so, you’re saying they’ll support my fat….person). These are approximately 20' L x 5.5" W, and are unused. These are excellent for steep passages/cave climbing (think search and rescue), emergency ladders for rescue or for 2nd floor evacuations. The Oregon Number is 21-248-01, the Service Charge is $50.00 each, and we have 83 in stock.

  

ZIPLOC Bags / Various Sizes

We recently received a shipment of new large ZIPLOC bags. These are really great for storing small parts, peanut M&M’s or really really big sandwiches. They are all ZIPLOC closure at one end, and other than that, not much else to say about them. I’m all of a sudden jonsing for peanut M&M’s though……

 

Oregon Number 21-294-01, 18” x 24”, 3MIL, 50 bags per bag/2 bags per carton/3 carton per case= 300 ea. per box. Service Charge $40.00 per box, 37 boxes in stock.

Oregon Number 21-294-02, 12” x 15”, 3MIL, 100 bags per bag/10 bags per case= 1000 ea. per box. Service Charge $80.00 per box, 34 boxes in stock.

 

We also have plain ‘ol plastic bags, NOT ZIPLOC:

 

Oregon Number 21-013-01 OR 21-013-02,16" x 18", .008MIL, 50 case. Service Charge $15.00 per box, 28 and 84 boxes in stock.

 

Fuel and Potable Water Tanks

We have both fuel and potable water tanks. The fuel tanks are metal with a steel cage surrounding them, Isomterics Inc., Sixcon MFT-205, manufactured 88-89, 900 gallon capacity, tare weight 2600#, gross max weight 10,000#, external dimensions 96" x 78" x 48". The potable water tanks are insulated fiberglass, and have the steel cage around them as well, manufactured by The Sharman Co., Inc., manufacture date 88-89, tare weight is 2687#, and max gross weight is 10,000#. The Service Charge is $800 for either, Oregon Number 21-286, and we currently have 6 of each in stock.

 

Ditch Witch Trencher/Backhoe

Once again, I will rely on the efforts of others, and instead of typing everything, I will simply copy/paste what’s already been said. I am a true plagiarist, but in my defense, it was 112 degrees in my home office that day, and I just didn’t want to think.

 

Ditch Witch by Charles Manufacturing Works, Inc., Model: 6510 DD, Ser: 6B1283, year currently unknown. Four cylinder diesel Deutz engine. Appears to have 0000.9 hours on the meter, so assume it has turned over or the hour meter was replaced. No documentation stating either. Includes front blade and backhoe and the rear is the trench digger. Scratches, dings, and surface rust. Both seats are worn and will need replaced. Starts and runs. Comes with trailer, Year:11-17-85(??)  Model: BWT-12, VIN: 1DS0000HX01019043, adjustable pintle hitch - 2.5" ID, max tongue load: 2000#,  GAWR: 10,400, GVWR: 12,400#, has low tires and one completely flat and on the rim. Tire size: 7.50 x 16.

 

Whew! I am exhausted with all that copy/pasting! This is Oregon Number 21-308-01, and the Service Charge is $12,000.

 

Plate Steel

This is more of a notification of pending property, rather than advertising current items. Allow me to ‘splain…..

 

We have been allocated many plates of steel, with some or most measuring ½” or more thickness. Plate steel is really heavy, so we’ve been bringing it in a little at a time. If you are interested in unused plate steel at a fraction of the cost of new, contact our agency salesperson, and he will get you more information. There will be enough to go around; there’s something like 135 pieces coming in, but we don’t anticipate it lasting long. So if you’re thinking about it, now’s the time! View the list of sizes and quantities here.

  

These items and much more are currently available at the stateoforegondepartmentofadministrativeservicesenterpriseassetmanagementstateandfederalsurpluspropertyprogram. To search for items currently in our inventory you can take a look in our database “Reuse (no login required), or as always you can speak to our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at  971-301-0193, or email at joe.mannion@oregon.gov, and he can get you squared away.

 

Please keep in mind that the items advertised here are for “Donee” organizations only. What does this mean? It means that you have done all of the legwork to make your agency, organization or SBA business eligible to receive federal property. If you’re not sure, please contact our Eligibility Specialist Carla Jeannette at 503-378-2753 or carla.jeannette@oregon.gov, and she can let you know what your current status is.

 

If you would like to stop receiving these email messages, please find the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of this page, and let me know which Listserv you receive messages on (I utilize 4 different Listserv’s). Likewise, if you know of somebody that might benefit from these emails, please have them send me an email, and we’ll get them signed up!

 

As always, thank you for your support (even through the last 15 months), and if you have any questions, such as “how to plagiarize” or “copy/paste made easy”, feel free to let me know. Everyone have a great rest of your week!

After receiving feedback from our Agency users, we have updated the Exhibit B - Service Order Form via amendment.  See the attached updated Exhibit B and Buyers Guide for more information.

 

These MSA’s are the result of RFP #DASPS-1620-20 issued 8/4/2020. These Master Agreements are for low voltage structured wiring (including voice, data, video, audio visual), outside plant, goods, equipment and related services as well as coordination services.

 

Authorized purchasers had previously obtained wiring services through a now expired amendment to the Century Link contract.  If you have any questions or need assistance, please let me know.

Good afternoon!

It was brought to my attention that Archive Systems, Inc. (PA # 0560)  has sent out the attached letter to agencies who use Archive Systems, Inc. for offsite data storage.  The letter is to inform everyone of a price increase as of June 1, 2021.  Please disregard this letter.  They have not formally requested a price adjustment per the terms of the contract, therefore, the current pricing stands.  If after June 1, 2021 your agency receives an invoice charging the increased amounts, please send the invoice back and requested a corrected one with the current contract pricing.  I’ve also attached a copy of the current pricing, Exhibit B.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Thank you.

MEET YOUR PUBLIC SAFETY NEED WITH STATEWIDE PRICE AGREEMENTS

One of the benefits of being an ORCPP member is access to our statewide price agreements. Thoroughly vetted to provide you low pricing from trusted suppliers, our statewide price agreements include a wide range of public safety-related goods and services. 

Check out the Resource & Buyers Guides we put together with a listing of the EMS, fire and police items for purchase, including a host of New Agreements including vehicles, face shields, masks and related products.

Good Day ORCPP Members,

DAS Procurement wanted to let you know that ORPIN is experiencing Hardware issues and our IT department is aware and working on it. This is not related to OregonBuys and the transition. 

​We are not certain on the timeframe, but we will let everyone know when it is back up and operational.  We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Good Afternoon ORCPP Members,

 

ORPIN is unfortunately still down due to hardware issues. The State Data Center is aware of the issue and is currently working on repairs. We don't have a clear ETA at this time.  If this carries into the weekend, we will still send out notification when ORPIN is back to functional.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause​.

Good Day ORCPP Members,

​We just wanted to let you know that ORPIN is up and running.  Sorry for any inconvenience. 

​Dear OrCPP Members,

July 1 is just around the corner – that’s when the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) will be replaced with OregonBuys. When the change happens, you’ll use OregonBuys in the same ways you use ORPIN today. And, you’ll also begin using the OregonBuys Marketplace to browse statewide price agreement catalogs. Please see the attached to learn more about Marketplace.

 

Here are some important dates to keep in mind as we prepare for the transition:   

 

June 16: ORPIN moves to read-only status

Read-only status means no new entries, modifications, or deletions. Existing data will remain available for historical purposes.

 

June 16 – 30: Blackout period

During this time, no new procurement documents can be processed as ORPIN is read-only and OregonBuys prepares for launch.

 

June 23 – 30: Optional document preparation week

If your organization has Solicitations that need to go live immediately on July 1, contact the OrCPP Program Managers to make prep arrangements.

 

July 1: ORPIN is replaced with OregonBuys  

Begin using OregonBuys to process procurement documents and use the OregonBuys Marketplace to browse statewide price agreements.

 

Learn more about managing in-process procurement documents during this transition timeframe by reading the OrCPP transition guidance.

 

Please stay tuned! We’ll soon announce dates and instructions for OregonBuys virtual training sessions.

 

In the meantime, please take a moment to verify that your organization has identified a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) that we can work with. We’re sending important messages to these SPOCs about system setup for your agency readiness.  

 

Sincerely,

Kelly Stevens-Malnar & Adam Helvey

Oregon Cascades West Council of Government (OCWCOG) located in Albany Oregon has a Contracts Coordinator position open for recruitment!  OCWCOG is a local governmental entity that provides all of the same benefits as State/City/County jobs. Our 6% PERS contributions are still picked up entirely by OCWCOG, which means the wages do appear a bit lower than the State jobs. This person would be able to work some remotely, particularly during the current pandemic. They would also have to come in to the office as well though, particularly to train.

Interested candidates can apply through the link below.

 I thought I would take a moment and showcase some items we’ve received here at Surplus Property lately. Some of them are slightly used, most are brand new, and all of them are priced with affordability in mind. Without further ado, let’s take a look at a few items!


Taski Intellibot Aerobot 1850 Robotic Vacuum

These are, as the name implies, robotic vacuum cleaners. I admit, I don’t know a lot about these; if I did, I would probably be working in a robotics lab somewhere. But I do know that these have had very little use (if any). They are like an industrial strength Roomba, and each one has its own charging station/home. We have messed around with these a little, but maneuvering around in a 72,000 sq. foot warehouse might have overwhelmed it; the display just kept flashing “You’re messing with me, right?”. We told it that there were no expectations, and it seemed to work just fine. I think these are meant for large office buildings, or areas with lots of floor space. The original acquisition (what the federal government paid) was a little over $43,000 apiece, but the Service Charge is going to be $4,500/vacuum and charging station*, and we have 6 in stock. Oregon Number 21-226-01A-F.

        T 

Heavy Duty Ratchet Straps

These heavy duty ratchet straps are utilized (as the name implies) to tie down heavy loads. They do not work well for tying down loads of gravel, dirt or water (everybody knows you need rope for that. Which we have in stock). But these are new/unused, and you can get them in any color you like (as long as it’s OD green), and they are priced to sell at just $20 apiece. We currently have 40 of these in stock, Oregon number 20-166-01

   

Folding Recessed Mount Steps

These steps come in handy for accessing places that are hard to reach. I’ve seen them used on semi-trailers to access refrigeration equipment, but I’m sure there are a hundred different uses for them. They snap out to a 90 degree angle from the base, and snap back to the folded position. The Service Charge on these is $15.00 apiece, we have 26 in stock, and the Oregon number is 21-220-01.

  

Williams Brand Tool Boxes

These tool boxes are a little less expensive than the one above. These are new/unused Williams brand, and come with the small parts tray in the top, and the dimensions are 26" x 8.75" x 9". There’s not much else to say about these…..they’re metal, red in color, come with a big black handle on top, two latches and a padlock hasp on front, kind of rectangular in shape. Tell you what, I’ll even throw in the cardboard carton so it doesn’t get scratched on the way home. The Oregon number on these is 21-007-01, and the Service Charge is $25.00 each.

 

 Elkay Drinking Fountains

The next item we have are some Elkay EZH2O Drinking fountains, model LZS8WSS. These are stainless steel, and have the refrigeration units in them. They are used, but very lightly….they are still in very good condition! We currently have 18 of these in stock, the Oregon number is 21-233-01, and the Service Charge is $200.00 per unit.

Get ‘em while they’re….cold.

            

 Plate Steel

This next item has somewhat of a limited use, but it’s great to have around when you’re a public works department, or a school that teaches trades. The dimensions on these are 17' L x 5' W x 1/8” thick, and they’re kind of heavy…..I wouldn’t bring the Prius to haul these away if I were you. The Oregon number on these is 21-216-01, and they are a “steel” (sorry) at just $100.00 per sheet. We currently have 33 sheets in stock.

 

 Blodgett Brand Ovens

These ovens are unused in their original crates. This is a model HV100EM and here is all of the information off the spec plates: Type II, Style 2, Size 1, Energy Star oven, smart touch 2 control, four speed fan, 304L Stainless Steel, 14 KW, 440 V AC, 3 PH, 3 Wire, 60 Hz, 15.00 Watts, "Marine Hydrovection Oven". Motor 208-240 VAC, 3 PH, 2.8 Amps. Whew, that’s a lot of information. My understanding is that these are designed to be used aboard a ship, but if you can meet all the power requirements, I see no reason why these can’t be used on land. And if you’re looking for an oven that needs to work on a ship, bonus! We’ve got just what you need right here. The Oregon numbers on these (2) ovens is 21-252-01A and B, and the Service Charge is $2,500.00 each…a pretty darned good price when you consider the federal gubment paid a little over $31K apiece for these. Yeah, they’re not cheap, and Blodgett is a good brand in ovens, so…..get ‘em while they’re hot! (Sorry not sorry, did it again….).

                     

 Here’s a short list of some items that have come in lately:

 

21-008 01    Welded chain                   $35

21-077 01    Duffel bag                        $25

21-022 02    Office cubicle shelf          $10

21-093 01    Sine wave inverter          $500

21-118 01    Industrial spectacles        $10   Sorry, no images yet. Please contact Mr. Mannion if interested, and he can get those

21-118 02    Industrial goggles            $10     (ditto)

21-194 01    Self inflating sleep mat    $15

 

Meals, Ready to Eat (MRE’s) continue to sell like hotcakes (pun intended) to qualified agencies. Just since 2/17/21, we have transferred 6,657 cases. We currently have 639 cases in stock, and most likely within the next two weeks will be receiving another 76 pallets (IF we’re allocated). If you’re looking to stock up, now’s a good time…..I’m just sayin’.

 

These items and more continue to flow into the Surplus Property warehouse. If you need more information about these or other items, feel free to contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193, or joe.mannion@oregon.gov​, and he can get you fixed up.

 

We continue to keep COVID protocols in place, which in essence means please wear a mask while you’re here. We are open 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday, and you don’t need to make an appointment to shop. Just come as you are (I mean, probably change out of your jammies, maybe run a comb through your hair….I know how you roll, I work from home too), and we’ll get you taken care of.

 

Remember, you must be an eligible agency/organization to get items from the stateoforegondepartmentofadministrativeservicesenterpriseassetmanagementstateandfederalsurpluspropertyprogram. If you’re not certain, just ask and we’ll let you know your current status. Otherwise, keep up the good work, you’re doing AWESOME work out there in agencyland, and keep your eye on the prize. This’ll all be over soon.

 

Now, I just need to convince the boss to let me come back in jammies, but I’ll wait and see. If he does….well, that’s like permission, right?

 

Have a great rest of your week!

Dear Procurementarians,

 

Back towards the end of January/first of February I sent out a notice (below) about many many cases of MRE’s* we were set to receive. Times being what they were with the ice storms and whatnot, we blew through those 76 pallets pretty quickly. So, I am here to announce that we have requested (and have been allocated) another 76 pallets of MRE’s*. Those arrived on the shores of Surplus Property earlier in the week, and it’s the same deal as before: these come 48 to a pallet, but you don’t have to buy an entire pallet if you just want/need/desire a few cases. Also, they are still $10.00 per case, so now is a good time to replenish your supply.

 

We never know if/when we will receive more, so there’s no time like the present! Also, please understand that these are intended to be used in emergency-type situations, so let’s review what that might look like;

 

  • There’s a huge ice storm that cripples the area. MRE’s are handed out to citizens that are stranded and without power…..Yes!
  • There’s a huge accident on the interstate, and an officer has been posted to block it. They’ve been there for 10 hours, and they have an MRE in the trunk…..Yes!
  • A search and rescue outfit is looking for a back-country skier that’s been reported missing. Everybody’s cold and hungry, so….hot MRE’s?.....Yes!
  • Your uncle Chuck has always wondered what MRE’s taste like, so you give him one to try. He likes it so much, you give him a case……No! Stop it. You can’t do that.
  • You acquire a pallet of MRE’s for your nonprofit organization, and you auction them off to the highest bidder at your annual fundraiser…… No. Please, don’t do that.
  • You’re lost in the woods, and all you have is an MRE. While looking for water to put in your MRE, you come across a grizzly bear. He starts chasing you, and your only chance of escape is to throw the MRE at him, hoping this will distract him. It works! You’re still hungry, but at least you’re still alive…..Okay, yeah. I guess that would be okay.

 

It’s important to know what you can and can’t do with any federal property you receive. If you’re not sure whether it is appropriate or not, just ask! The scenario’s above are real…..okay, so I made up the one about the officer on the closed interstate…..but now is a good time to re-stock your supplies. If interested, just contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion (joe.mannion@oregon.gov​ 971-301-0193), and he can get you fixed up. We currently have 3,393 cases in stock, which sounds like a lot, but they tend to sell out quickly.

 

Thanks everybody, and if you’re needing these (or any) items for your program, feel free to let Joe know, and he can help you out!

 

*MRE’s - Meals, Ready to Eat. <<< Go to Wikipedia now. Also, if they’re called “Meals, Ready to Eat”, why are they not called “MRtE’s”? Meals Ready Eat doesn’t sound right either…..it’s like caveman talk. Maybe people named “Marty” don’t like the sound “MRtE”, like it robs them of their uniqueness as individuals. Sorry, just pondering……

Data Classification Level 2 - Limited

Dear OrCPP Members,

As you may be aware, the state of Oregon is getting a new web-based eProcurement system called OregonBuys. DAS is rolling out this system to OrCPP members in two project phases:

  • Phase 1 ─ On July 1, 2021, the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) will be replaced with OregonBuys. Members will use OregonBuys in the same ways they currently use ORPIN, including:
    • Posting Solicitations, including the facilitation of questions and answers and Intent to Award.
    • Searching for statewide contracts through the OregonBuys Marketplace. 
  • Phase 2 ─  In the summer of 2023, added OregonBuys functionality becomes available to members, including receiving electronic responses and completing the Solicitation process by indicating awarded vendors.

    We're currently in Phase 1 of the project and focused on replacing ORPIN. Over the next few months, we'll be in contact to share information about how you can get ready for the change.

    Actions to take:
  1. Click here to submit a Single Point of Contact (SPOC) to us so we know who to contact at your organization for upcoming project tasks.
  2. If you missed the March 10 OregonBuys forum for OrCPP members, click here to view the recording (iLearn login and Zoom passcode: 1MjiWo^F required).

    If you'd like to learn more about why the state needs this important eProcurement system, please review the attached summary or visit the OregonBuys project website: https://oregonbuys.oregon.gov

     In the meantime, please reach out to your OrCPP Program Managers at info.orcpp@oregonbuys.gov if we can help answer questions, or contact the DAS project team directly at OregonBuys.info@oregon.gov.

    Sincerely,
     
    OrCPP Program Managers

Dear Procurementarians,

 

Our friends at Washington County (the Sheriff’s Office to be exact) are wanting to find a home for a Kardex Lextriever 2000 Filing System located in their office. If you think you might want to adopt this item from Washington County for your agency, take a look at the attachments included in this email; there’s a lot of good information, including photo’s. Ideally they would like this to go to a local government or nonprofit organization.

 

If interested, please contact Jerimy Reis (contact information below), and hopefully you two can work something out!

Dear Procurementarians,

 

It’s that time again, where you indulge me and take a look at a few items that have come in to Surplus Property lately. Even in the midst of a global pandemic, the surplus machine keeps churning out items for us to snatch up from the federal government and bring to the warehouse here in Salem. We still have a dedicated staff working tirelessly at the Salem warehouse, and they’ve been busy pumping out the property….pandemic? What pandemic? Of course they are taking all the necessary precautions to keep everybody safe, so it goes without saying that we would appreciate if you did too!

 

Given this, let’s take a look at a few items that have arrived lately. Clicking on the images of product below will open that item up in our database “Reuse” that will have more pictures, more description, more detail…..more everything!

  

Hand Sanitizer w/moisturizer

We still have a few cases of the hand sanitizer in stock. We’ve sold 79 cases, and have 114 left. I realized that I never did advertise these. It just kind of slipped between emails, so…….we have hand sanitizer! With moisturizer! These 1 gallon jugs come 4 to a case, and are sold by the case only. Tell you what, if you purchase a case today, I will throw in the hand pump that screws into the top of the jug, no charge! Yes, I am a giver. I’ll even throw in the printed paperboard retention apparatus that contains these jugs, AND the 128oz Plastic High Density Polyethylene containment vessel at no extra charge! You’re not going to get a better deal anywhere, I guarantee it! This is Oregon Number 21-061-01, and the Service Charge is $50.00 for a 4 gallon jug case.

 

Pennywise may have hand sanitizer, but he’s not saying anything about hand sanitizer with moisturizer, so I’m thinking his game is lame…….                                   

 

Eiko Rough Service Bulbs

The next items are these Eiko rough service bulbs. Just because you can treat them rough is no reason you should; they are, after all, still light bulbs. These are ideal for use in drop lights, or in areas where there is a lot of vibration, like garage door openers. Each package contains 2 bulbs, they are 100w, and 760 lumens. The Oregon number is 20-466-01, and the Service Charge is just $2.00 per package!

 

 GoJo/Skilcraft Liquid Soap Dispensers

Next are these unused GoJo hand soap dispensers (not the bar soap dispensers; we ran out of those already). These are designed to take GoJo brand hand soap, but I can’t help but think that you could use other brands in them. If not, GoJo is still around, making liquid hand soap. The Oregon number on these is 20-457-01, and the Service Charge is $15.00 each.

   

Xantrex 1800 Watt Sine Wave Inverters

Never run out of power again with these Xantrex 1800/1800 watt sine wave inverters. These little babies magically turn 24VDC into 1800 watt 120VAC. This comes in real handy if you’re stuck in the boonies somewhere and you have no way to reheat your coffee, or watch TV, or whatever it is you do with 120V. Many agencies have installed these on their service vehicles, as they are usually working where there is no 120V. Tell you what, I’ll even throw in the cabling and an outlet at no additional cost! That’s….well, I don’t know what kind of value that is, but you will have most everything here to make power. All you need is 24VDC and you’re set. The Oregon Number on this is 21-093-01, and the Service Charge is $500 ea.    

 

Powerex Battery Chargers

Maybe we’ll end up selling these back to the federal government….it wouldn’t be the strangest thing I’ve ever seen. But until that happens, we just received a huge shipment of new Powerex MH-C801D battery chargers. These are new in box, and they charge both AA and AAA batteries in an hour, 8 at a time, and they have individual charge meters across the front. We only have 600 of these in stock, but by the time you read this, they will already be selling like hotcakes, and they’re going to fly out of here (pun intended)! Rechargeable batteries are not included. The Oregon Number on these is 21-120-01, and the Service Charge is $25.00 each.

  

Camouflage Tents

Ugh, sorry. I don’t write these, I just save them to the “Dad Jokes” file. What we have here are 2 person tents. To be honest, the 2 persons would need to be pretty friendly with each other to use these……maybe 2 children? Well, anyway, these tents are as shown, kind of a cool half-dome configuration. They’re easy to set up (TBH, I don’t know that for sure, as I did not put this one up. Jennifer did. But there are no stab marks on it, so it must be reasonably easy), and comes in its own little carry bag. Camping season is just around the corner…..I’m looking at you Boy Scouts and forest camps….the Oregon Number is 21-066-01, and the Service Charge is $30.00 ea. Just be sure to GPS where you set this up before you go on a hike, or else you’ll never find it again. Cuz it’s camouflaged. Get it? Good.

  

Stake Bed Truck Panels

This one is kind of different. These are plywood panels with metal (aluminum?) stakes. For those that don’t know what a stake bed is, imagine a flatbed truck with rectangular holes around the perimeter of the bed. These panels build a wall that sits on top of the flat bed surface. Now I’ve seen a lot of stake bed trucks before, but these seem to be a lot of panels for just one truck….maybe two trucks? One really big truck? I don’t know. All I know is that these are new/unused, and what you see is what you get when you get a set. What do you mean “I need more”, I haven’t even told you the Service Charge yet! Okay, tell you what, I’ll throw in the HD ratchet straps holding the panels onto the pallet. Sheesh, you guys are tough. The Oregon Number on these is 20-495-01, and the Service Charge is $600 per set. We currently have 9 sets in stock.

  

Plastic Zip Ties

So just to be clear: when you acquire federal property, you agree to put it into use within one year for its intended purpose, and to retain it for one year. After that, you can do what you want with it. So, my advice is to hang on to these for a year before tying them to your co-workers driveline……with your supervisor’s permission of course…..that whole “intended purpose” clause comes in to question if you do this. Or use your own if you can’t wait that long. These are packages of 100 zip ties, new in package, and are 14” long. We all know there are like a million uses for these (one of which I already gave you), so I won’t list any. The Oregon Number is 21-137-01, and the Service Charge is just $5.00 per package. We only have 215 packages left in stock.

  

Folded Paper Towels

Yeah yeah, I know these aren’t the same towels as the picture above, but I feel it’s my duty to give you as many practical jokes as I can. Folded paper towels….well, they just aren’t that funny. But they are useful, so here we have cases of Kraft Singlefold paper towels. One case contains 16 bundles, 250 towels per bundle, 4000 individual towels. Gosh, there’s not much else to say about these…..we have 21 cases in stock, the Oregon Number is 21-145-02, and the Service Charge is $25.00 per case.

 

  All these great buys and more are currently available at the StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyprogram. We are open for agency sales Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00 PM for your shopping convenience. If you come to the Surplus warehouse, please be sure to bring a face mask and practice social distancing (we have placards on the floor in case you forget). If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact our COVID-19 PPE compliance officer/agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193, or joe.mannion@oregon.gov.

These items (and all surplus items) are only available to eligible government or nonprofit organizations. If you’re unsure if your 3-year eligibility is still good or not, you can contact our Eligibility Specialist Carla Jeannette at 503-507-0518, or carla.jeannette@oregon.gov​ and she can answer any question you have regarding eligibility (just don’t call her “Jeannette”. She’s very sensitive that way).

 

Finally, I’ve received late word that the first of two trucks containing MRE’s (Meals, Ready to Eat) are due to arrive Monday 2/8/2021. If you miss out on the first load, you can likely get in on the second load. Just don’t dither/dilly-dally/fiddly-fool around. That last one is what my dad always used to say. I think it’s Gaelic for “don’t hesitate”, but I don’t really know.

 

Thanks all, and have a great day!

Dear Procurementarians,

 

This is an early warning that we are going to be getting 76 pallets of MRE’s from the federal government very soon. They were allocated to us a couple of days ago, so they should start arriving on the shores of Surplus Property right around the first of next week, around February 1st.

 

If you’re interested, contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193, or joe.mannion@oregon.gov  to get your advanced reservations in.

 

Not for absolute certain about the price, but last time they were $10.00/case of 12. I anticipate this lot to be about the same. Also, not certain of the case count per pallet….historically it’s been 48 cases per pallet, so I have no reason to doubt that this shipment will be any different.

 

So give Joe a call to reserve yours today. These have a tendency to sell out quickly, so don’t dilly-dally (I don’t even know what that means….I think it means “don’t waste any time….”).

 

That is all. (Have a great day everybody!

Price Agreement 1621 for Childers Meat Distributing is posted in ORPIN and is ready for immediate use. See Agreement in ORPIN for Agreement details and Pricelist .

All Orders placed against current Agreement 5613 prior to the expiration date are to be honored unless Purchaser and Vendor have mutually agreed upon an Order change.

I just made the incorrect assumption that everybody knows what MRE’s are….wow, there are quite a few folks that do not know. If you are one of those people, you are not alone….there’s a whole passel of you out there.

 

MRE’s are Meal, Ready to Eat. They were originally meant to feed military personnel, but have been used to feed those in emergency situations as well.

 

​​Here is the Wikipedia write up on those.

 

Let us know if you have any questions (other than “what are MRE’s”). Sorry I assumed….yes, I know what I do when I assume….carry on

The Commission for the Blind’s Business Enterprise (BE) Program is reaching out again to government agencies across the State.  Our intention is to raise awareness of the BE program and provide an easy mechanism for the legislatively required annual reporting.

 

As you may know, the BE program enables blind Oregonians to operate their own independent businesses, these business provide food service and vending in our government buildings across the State. ORS 346.510-346.570

2017’s House Bill 3253 made significant changes to ORS 346.510-346.570 and added responsibilities for “each agency, department or political subdivision charged with maintaining public buildings or properties:  ORS 346.530 now requires that agencies and political subdivisions “annually notify the Commission for the Blind in writing of any and all existing locations where vending facilities are in operation or where vending facilities might properly and satisfactorily be operated”.  The intent being to maximize opportunities for blind Oregonians.

 

To assist with this annual reporting the BE program has created a survey that will help facilitate the ORS 346.530 requirements.

 

Survey link: https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/4245916/2020-ORS-346-530-Compliance-Survey  

Please complete the survey by 12/18/2020.

 

The survey results will assist the BE program in preparing our annual report to the legislature.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me directly.

On May 28, 2020, the State of Oregon established an Oregon Statewide Price Agreement for Medical Staffing Services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Price Agreement is for the benefit of Oregon State agencies and members of the Oregon Cooperative Procurement Program (ORCPP), (Collectively “Authorized Purchasers”). Authorized Purchasers may award one or more Work Order Contract (WOC) pursuant to the provisions of this Price Agreement. 

 

PA#DASPS-3399-20 has been updated: Amendment 4 extends term to support the ever growing need for medical staff during the increased numbers of COVID-19. DAS PS has also posted on the OPRIN system the updated Buyers Guide along with a WOC “sample” in word format.

 

You can download the documents from the ORPIN system at: https://orpin.oregon.gov/open.dll/welcome

 

If you have any questions or comments please call or email the Contract Administrator for this Price Agreement, Shirley A. Smith at (P) 971-718-7428 or

OSHA has developed new emergency administrative rules that impact most work environments to combat the spread of COVID19. Please follow this link to review these new temporary rules: https://secure.sos.state.or.us/oard/viewSingleRule.action?ruleVrsnRsn=274335. The rules put some new requirements on Public Agencies for the cleaning of facilities in many situations. The portion of the new rule most applicable is OAR 437-001-0744(3)(c). The purpose of this “Buyer-Link” is to suggest some options that Pubic Agencies may employ to meet this need.

 

  • Most Janitorial contract have a provision for “Exceptional Services.” This contract provision and the prices developed by the contract are usually utilized for services needed that were not included in the statement of work, and are charged on a time and materials basis. The “Not-to-exceed” figure in most contracts may need to be adjusted by amendment to encompass the potential costs prior to the end of the current contract term. It bears mentioning that this might be the most expensive option for meeting these requirements.
  • The contract may be amended to include a provision for these new requirements. The contractor will need to review these changes and provide a revised price to account for any additional labor and materials that are required by the contractor to meet these requirements. An Oregon Forward Contractor (OFC, aka QRF) will need to revise their price for this sort of amendment. They will need to complete costing workbooks and the DAS Oregon Forward program will need to approve the pricing. State Agencies should send their adjusted SOW to the OFC as soon as possible to allow them to complete this task. DAS will promptly review the submissions so as to facilitate Public Agency compliance with these new requirements.
    • The amendment may be written in such a way to sunset this new pricing to coincide with the sunset of this new temporary rule, reverting to the pricing that is now in place at that time.
  • The Public Agency may hire temporary workers, or contract with an OFC temporary service provider to meet this requirement. Here is a link to some guidance about this process.https://www.oregon.gov/das/Procurement/Documents/StaffingServicesGuidance.pdf

The Public Agency would provide all equipment and materials for this option, with the workers performing the work as directed by the Public Agency. To utilize an OFC Temporary Services provider, the State Agency or ORCCP member may utilize one of the existing Price Agreements for this service. For your convenience, they are listed here.

Dear Procurementarians,

 

I hope this email finds you all well. In a world where it feels like everything has stopped temporarily, the surplus machine keeps churning along. The federal government has been cautiously moving forward with disposal processes, and while there was a clear stoppage at one point, they have since commenced with business as usual. It has been a challenge to be sure; where we have things like stickers on the floor showing us how to social distance, hand sanitizer everywhere and virtual everything, things are opening up, albeit slowly. The amount of property that has been washing up on the Surplus Property shores has remained fairly constant, so I thought I would highlight a few items that have come in lately.

          

New Polartech Fleece Jackets

 

Well, this is interesting. Here we are, going into the fall/winter seasons, and we are getting in fleece jackets! I would understand if it were late spring and going into summer, because that’s just how we roll here at Surplus (i.e., air conditioners in January, heaters in August, etc.). Well, I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, and I am just going to let you know that we have these, and they are in their original unopened package. The color is….unique, especially if you like split pea soup. The brand is Polartech, and the size is medium (it looks to me like a pretty big medium). Throw one in the back of your program vehicle for use in emergencies, or just something your crew can wear when out in the field. We have these under Oregon Number 19-159-11 and 12, with a combined inventory of a little over 100. The federal government paid $67.15 apiece for these, but the Service Charge is just $20.00 each to you!

          

Unicor “ARMY” Long and Short Sleeve Shirts

 

Well, now I’ve seen everything. Two winter items of clothing in the same warehouse at the same time. This is just like winning the lottery! Okay, it’s not that good, but it’s good. There are a couple styles in this lot….I’m seeing turtle-neck long sleeves and regular ‘ol short sleeves. They are new in the package, and get this…..the ones I looked at are Large and X-Large! We usually get these in X-small-infant-toddler size! We only have 1,269 of these in stock, and while that sounds like a lot…..well, it is a lot. We just need them gone. They do have “ARMY” across the front, with a logo on the back. Oregon Number 20-207-02, and your Service Charge is just $5.00 each​

  

Mobile Yard Ramps 

 

I getting really ramped up about what to say about these.…..something uplifting…..something that will raise your curiosity…...something built from the ground up……ugh. I give up. These mobile ramps are designed to be located at the back of a truck, when your loading dock is occupied or otherwise non-existent. You can roll these up to the back of a truck…..most any truck, set the brake (don’t forget to set the brake), then drive on or off. They are ideal in a yard that loads and unloads a lot of freight. The ramps are 36’ long, and the weight capacity is 16,000 lbs. The tires may need to be replaced, but we’ve built that in to the Service Charge. The Oregon Number on these is 20-437-01 and 02, there are two different brands to choose from (Brooks & Perkins Inc., and Magline, Inc.), and the Service Charge is $4000 each.

  

 Manila Rope

 

This is the genuine article. Manila rope, 9/16” Dia. X 1200 ft. 1-3/4” Circ. Date May 2017 Made in the Philippines. But don’t take my word for it, you can read it on the product in the picture like I just did. We have about 12 rolls in stock, Oregon numbers 20-438-03 and 04. Service Charge is $50 per roll. And just so you know, we keep the sales of items confidential, so we don’t accidentally divulge the locations of your secret squirrel training facilities.

          

The next item is for replacement LED lamps. These are new in the box Keystone Direct Drive LED tubes, and there are 2 different sizes (the smaller size has only 4 boxes and 2 may be partials) 7W and 12W, 3' T8 (Medium Bi-Pin), 120-277V Input voltage, 25 Per carton. Whew! That was tough doing all that research! Not really…..I copy/pasted from Reuse. Sue me for plagiarism. I need a vacation anyway. The Oregon Number is 20-266-01, and the Service Charge is $25 per carton.

   

SIXCON 900 Gallon Fuel Storage Tanks

 

Nine hundred gallons…..that’s a lot of fuel. If you have equipment being stored in remote locations, these come in especially handy. These are portable (if you have a forklift), and they come in any color you like, as long as it’s olive-drab. We have four of these in stock, Oregon Number 20-211-01(A,B,C & D), and the Service Charge is $1200 each. These won’t last long….they never do!

 

Trailer mounted enclosed compressor unit

So agency salesperson Joe comes up to me and says “Darren, let’s throw this trailer mounted compressor on the email”. So I was like the little girl in the picture, because……well, because I so resemble a little girl and all. Anyway, it appears we have a compressor, and it is an Aeroflow Industries Model 2AN137 trailer mounted and enclosed compressor unit. This is a dual axle trailer with 2" standard ball hitch, has roll up doors on both sides, and is in dire need of tires. If you The Oregon Number is 20-384-01, and the Service Charge is $3500.

   

These items and more are available now at the StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyprogram (aka “Surplus”). If you are interested in any of the items above, you need more information, you are needing something else, you just want to chat, you need someone to come and jump start your car, babysit your kids, feed the dog while you’re on vacation, wash your car, etc., please contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193 or joe.mannion@oregon.gov​ and he would be happy to help. He loves it when I volunteer him.

Please note that these items (including all items at Surplus) are available to eligible government agencies and nonprofit organizations only. Eligibility status is good for three years, at which time we will send out reminders that your agency or organization needs to renew. Sadly, many entities neglect to renew their eligibility until they try to buy something, at which time…..well, it just gets ugly. Agency representatives come by to shop, fill shopping carts full of items, then go to check out only to find their agency has expired. It’s kind of like going out to dinner, only to find your credit card is maxed out. If you’re feeling good about your eligibility status, by all means come on down. If you know you’re expired, and you send someone in to shop just to prank them…….well, it’s a tad indelicate, but I applaud your twistedness. If you’re not sure, you can contact me OR if you want the correct answer the first time, you can contact our Eligibility Specialist Carla Jeannette at 503-378-2753 or carla.jeannette@oregon.gov (just don’t use her last name as her first. She’s kind of touchy that way).

As always, when you do visit Surplus, please observe all current COVID-19 guidelines; wear your mask, use the provided hand sanitizer, and look for the “6’ spacing” stickers that are on the floor. Just don’t forget to breathe. Sometimes the items and prices are so good, people get excited and forget to do this. Then they go to check out, and find they aren’t eligible any more……

Everybody have a great rest of your Friday (if you’re still around), and have a fantastic weekend!

5613– Childers Distributing

 

Please let me know if you have any questions, at the number below or if you prefer at my email lori.doke@oregon.gov​


 

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company has received numerous questions and comments about an inaccurate news story originating from our Topeka, KS factory.  As a result, some agencies have informed our authorized Goodyear distributors within your State that they will no longer purchase Goodyear tires. 

 

As a key vendor to your State and agencies within, we would like to set the record straight and ask that you please disseminate our message to all agencies within your State, including your State Highway Patrol.

 

We deeply regret the impression that has been created. It has called into question Goodyear’s proud 100+ year history of producing the best tires in the world for our law enforcement community.  Goodyear’s relationship with law enforcement and all First Responders is foundational to our company.  Statements that “Goodyear does not support law enforcement” are 100% false and we appreciate the opportunity to set the record straight.

 

Goodyear welcomes dialog by phone or email with any agency that has lingering questions or concerns.  Please reach out to Kenny Miller or myself to give us the opportunity to discuss the facts of this unfortunate incident.

 

Best regards,

We (meaning you) have a special opportunity to acquire some items for your agency or organization. These items are settee’s, and if you’re having a hard time visualizing what a settee is, imagine the waiting area of your local DMV; settee’s are the seats they use in those waiting areas. Coincidentally, we have three DMV locations that need their settees gone. These are being offered up at no charge, but there are some conditions attached:

 

  1. You need to be a government agency (state, city, county, special districts, etc.) or nonprofit organization within the state of Oregon.

 

  1. You need to make all of the transportation and logistics arrangements for the transfer between your agency/organization and DMV (that means you’ll need to bring your own truck). My name is Paul, and this is between y’all. So if you contact me and say “I want 20 settee’s for my agency”, I can’t do a thing for you. You’ll need to contact the property custodian listed for that site.

 

  1. Please don’t be greedy….I know you won’t, but I still have to say it. In other words, don’t request all 27 units from Sherwood. You’ll freeze out other agencies that may just want one or two. Maybe work with the custodian, and if nobody else requests them, then maybe you can take all. Fair and equitable distribution is the way we roll.

 

  1. I expect these will be spoken for quickly, so don’t delay. If you’re interested, strike while the iron is hot (I don’t know what this means exactly, but to me it just means don’t doddle, or you will miss out).

 

  1. We are going off of the honor system. We are not the surplus settee police. Please be kind/responsive/cooperative with the custodians. They are doing a tough job in tough times, just like the rest of us.

 

With that being said, please feel free to contact the custodians mentioned below if interested. I have also attached photos of what is being made available. Again, time is of the essence, so if you’re interested, contact the property custodians as soon as possible.

 

Good luck!

Corvallis: 6-8 four seaters in good condition ~ Office contact: Kimberley Patton, phone #541-757-4291

 

Beaverton: The number of settees – 38 ~ The general condition of the settees – mostly good to excellent conditions except a few have a little stain. The dimensions of the settees – 33” height x 85” length x 21” depth. Office contact: Wayne Chan, phone #971-613-4700

 

Sherwood: Sherwood has 27 settees, they are 68” long and 24” wide, height from the floor to the seat it is 17” to the top of the chair it is 30”. They are in good condition, they have 3 seats each. ~ Office contact: Barbara Kurtz, phone #503-625-2719
