​Garten Services is now approved as an Oregon Forward Contractor to provide Confidential Records Destruction in Washington County. Most will remember that Public Agencies are required to utilize Oregon Forward Contractors that can provide a product or service that meets the requirements of the Public Agency.

 

Price Agreement 8269 was established with Garten Services to provide a means by which State Agencies and Local Government Agencies, who are also ORCCP members, may purchase Confidential Records Destruction services. Besides Washington County, Garten was previously approved to provide this service through the Oregon Forward Program in Marion, Polk, Benton, Clackamas, Lane, Linn, and Yamhill counties.

 

PA 8269 can be accessed by utilizing OregonBuys, the State of Oregon’s eprocurement system to obtain the Work Order Contract document needed to purchase services through that Price Agreement.

 

Garten’s primary contact for ordering Confidential Record Destruction Services is Katelin Haller. Her email address is  khaller@garten.org, and her phone number is 503-581-4472 ext. 3400.

​As the 2021 year ended, we want to remind you and bring to your attention to important information about contracts you may be participating in. The Lumen and AT&T contracts have ended or are in a final transition period.  If you are utilizing these contracts your action is required immediately.

 

AT&T Contract

The AT&T contract with the State of Oregon has expired, there are some remaining services being provided by AT&T at the previously contracted rates, but those services must be immediately moved to a valid contract.

  • The enterprise AT&T contract and transition period ended August 31, 2021.
  • Federal Tariff rates apply after contract end (e.g. Long distance .05/min to $2.00/min).
  • AT&T provided Long Distance, Toll Free, and Conference services.
  • Remaining Services must be migrated to alternate enterprise contracts. There is a verbal agreement with AT&T to maintain the contracted rates temporarily.

 

Lumen Changes

The Legacy Lumen contract, also known as CSP #5223 (which included TCPERS) ended December 31, 2021. ORCPP Members utilizing TCPERS Lumen are in a transition period through December 31, 2022.

The legacy phone system support under CSP #5223 (which included MES)  Ended on December 31, 2021.  The Legacy Lumen systems will receive “best effort” support during 12-month transition period, ending  December 31, 2022.

 

The time to transition away from legacy contracts is now! It takes to convert and port numbers to new telephone systems.  DAS and EIS have provided a lot of information regarding telephony services and we are here to assist if you have questions about the changes that need to occur in a short time frame. Please reach out to Enterprise.TelecomMgmt@das.oregon.gov or  Rachel.r.smith@das.oregon.gov with any questions or requests for assistance.

​THE DATES OF THE EVENT ARE TOMORROW!  June 28 and 29th.  Sorry for the confusion!

 

NOTE: The previously solicitated surplus event at Camas Ridge on July 12 and 13 has been cancelled.

 

Eugene School District 4J will be hosting a surplus event on June 28 and 29th, 2022, at the Willard School, located at 2855 Lincoln St, Eugene, OR 97405. The event will be open from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm both days.

 

NEW ITEMS have been added from the posting we made about a month ago -- more desks, tables, chairs, and other school fixtures that we were not in the original listing

 

This event will be open to the general public and we of course invite all school districts, charter/private schools, and government agencies to stop by to see if anything is of interest to your organization.

 

4J staff on site will be extremely limited, so please come prepared to carry out and haul away any items claimed.

 

DIRECTIONS: Located behind Market of Choice on Willamette Street, there are two school sites off 29th Ave -- one below, and one higher up on a hill. This surplus event will be taking place at Willard, which is the site higher up on the hill.

 

Please contact Dustin at warehouse@4j.lane.edu if you have any questions. Thank you!


​Beginning August 13, 2022 Price Agreement 8345Universal and Household Hazardous Waste will no longer be available for use.

Please be sure all Purchase Order Contracts are issued and fully executed in their entirety by end of business on August 13, 2022.

 

The State of Oregon intends to re-solicited for these services, but there is potential for gap in services between the end date of PA 8345 and the beginning of a new agreement.

Under  MCUA and Oregon Cooperative Procurement Program (ORCPP) memberships, customers could potentially secure similar services through Washington Master Contract # 03614.

Additional options are to write a direct award, perform a three quote process or a mini solicitation in accordance with Oregon State Law.

Good Day

For most of you this “ask” will take just a few seconds, and for those of you that do find your organization on the list below – the ORCPP Team needs your help with completing a task.

 

  1. Not on the list?  Then you are done and do not need to do anything further.
  2. If your organization is listed below, then we respectfully ask that you do the following as soon as possible as our window to complete IGA document transfers from the retired system ORPIN to OregonBuys closes May 31, 2022

 

Background:  The State of Oregon moved to a new e-procurement system -  OregonBuys (replaced ORPIN on July 1, 2021).

 

Purpose of this communication:  The State of Oregon and the Oregon Cooperative Purchasing Program are required enter the OrCPP IGA we have with your organization in the new system OregonBuys, and to do that, we need your organization to register as a “vendor” in system.

 

OregonBuys has TWO Sides:

 

Vendor or Supplier Side:  Where OrCPP members need to register so that DAS PS and your OrCPP IGA can be loaded by us, and your organization will/can use this side of the system to browse Grant and RFA opportunities posted by State Agencies.

 

Buyer Side:  This side is for shopping off of State contracts and using the system to post your organization’s bidding opportunities.  If you need access to search available contracts and post notices please send a request to be added on the buyer side to:  info.orcpp@das.oregon.gov  (DAS PS is the only entity that can grant access permissions to this side of system).

 

NOTE:  These two sides will have completely different logins.  You will want to keep them separate, depending on how and what you use the system for.

 

Here’s what to expect as you register on the vendor side of OregonBuys:

 

  1. Go to:  OregonBuys and click on the BLUE Register button in the top right corner

 

  1. You will need your organization’s EIN (as the system only allows one organizational registration)

 

  1. This should not take more than 5 minutes to complete the registration.  If you are having trouble registering your organization on the Vendor Side, please contact vendor/supplier support at:  support.oregonbuys@das.oregon.gov or by calling 855-800-5046

 

  1. Once your organization has completed the Vendor Registration in OregonBuys, please send a quick email to:  Anya.Corbitt@das.oregon.gov and let her know you have finished registering on the Vendor side of OregonBuys.

 

  1. Watch for announcements of upcoming webinars on “Getting the most out of OregonBuys and its functionality”.

Data Classification Level 2 - Limited

It's time once again to make you aware that we are going to be getting tons and tons of MRE's very soon. We have been allocated 180 pallets, which…is a lot. We don't really have room for 180 pallets here at Surplus Property, but 2 lots (72 pallets) have already been spoken for from our “Want List", and are being shipped direct to their respective donee agencies. This is really a great time to score some MRE's for your agency/organization, as we never know exactly when we will get more. Fortunately, these are located fairly close to us (Northern California), so despite the outrageous cost of fuel (and subsequent shipping costs), we are able to stick to our regular price of just $10 per case! How do we do it??? I don't know!!! We just do!!! You can purchase by the case, by the pallet (photo to the left is 2 pallets, 96 cases), by the truckload (1,728 cases)…..you have options! And let's just get this out of the way…..you cannot purchase for your doomsday prepper bunker. People always ask, and it's okay to ask, but these can only be sold to your agency/organization for their use. And no, you can't buy them from them either.

If you're interested in getting some of these for your agency, nonprofit organization or Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), you must be eligible to purchase through the StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyProgram. If you're not sure, contact our eligibility specialist Carla Jeannette at 503-378-2753 carla.jeannette@das.oregon.gov. It's never good to miss out on an opportunity just because your eligibility has expired.

If you're interested in procuring some of these, contact our agency liaison Tim Dunayevich at 971-301-0193 or tim.dunayevich@das.oregon.gov, and he can get you fixed up! Pallets will begin to arrive early next week, so get your orders in early while supplies last!

 Darren Kennedy, OPBC, Senior Program Analyst  |  DAS Enterprise Asset Management  |  503-378-6022  | 

We have a couple of new things happening at state Surplus Property that I wanted to make you aware of. Some of it is new new, and some of it is kind of the same, but new-er. Anyway, please give this a read, and let me know if you have any questions!

  

Screening Federal Property

 

We are offering you, as an eligible agency, the chance to shop for federal Donation property for your agency/organization. Who if not you knows best about the kind of property you need to carry out your missions? Picture this: we give you login credentials to go into the federal government website (GSAXcess) where all the federal government property lives, and you look for property for your agency. If you are allocated property, you make your own shipping arrangements (or pick it up yourselves), pay a small Service Charge to us (because we still need to do administrative work), all for a discounted Service Charge.

 

How would it all work?

 

As an eligible agency in good standing, you would request login credentials (username and password) to gain access into GSAXcess, which is the federal government website that showcases all the property that is being made available. These credentials are view-only. Once you identify something you’re interested in, you would contact us to find out what the Service Charge would be. If you decide you would like us to request it for you, we will submit the request on your behalf. When the screening cycle ends (known as a “Surplus Release Date”, or SRD), GSA will allocate property to those that have requested it.

         

So, we’re not guaranteed the items we request?

 

There are factors that determine if your agency is allocated property. We are the “State Agency for Surplus Property”, or “SASP” for Oregon. For the most part, there is a SASP in each state (and some territories), so there are 50+ SASP’s around the world. Because of shipping costs, you’re probably not going to screen something located in Puerto Rico; likewise, donee’s in Puerto Rico are probably not going to screen items located at Fort Lewis WA. But, there is competition from other SASP’s, as well as the federal government, who can step in at any time and be allocated property. If you spot an item or items that you have an immediate need for, you can supply us with a letter on your agency’s letterhead that states you have an immediate need for the property. We will then forward that on to the person at GSA that allocates property, and if the other requesters don’t have an immediate need, this puts you to the head of the line. In some cases, you may be the only one requesting property, and you will be allocated the item(s) by default.


​So how do we get started?

 

First, you need to be an agency in good standing with Surplus Property (meaning your three-year eligibility is current). Then, you will need login credentials by contacting Mr. Don Tesdal in our office at 503-378-6051 or don.tesdal@das.oregon.gov, and he will get you signed up. Note: Mr. Tesdal will need a good email address, as GSAXcess uses “Multi-factor authentication” to log you in. Watch a brief presentation from GSA located here (less than 2 minutes),and read through a short tutorial on how to screen property located here (only 3 pages WITH PICTURES!)

 

This is a great opportunity to acquire items for your agency or organization, while saving money in the process. If you would like more information, or simply need clarification on anything covered here, please feel free to contact me and I will be glad to help you out.

  

The ”Want List”

 

Surplus Property has revamped the entire Want List process, from beginning to end. Long gone are the days of temperamental PDF’s and submission buttons that don’t work. Lately, we have evolved and taken the “Want List” submission form and made it an integral part of the web page, rather than relying on a separate form. As far as the master list is concerned, we’ve changed the way we track requests on the back end. Most of these changes are ones the typical user will never see, but it helps Surplus staff track requests and get you the items you request for your agency or organization. We’ve also included instructions and examples of the types of property that should be requested through the Want List.

To check out the new Want List submission instructions and form, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Comings and Goings

Earlier in the year, Surplus Property lost our agency salesperson Joe Mannion, as he has accepted a position as Horticulture Director at Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Instead of hiring a replacement, our previous agency salesperson Tim Dunayevich is filling Joe’s vacancy, and becoming more of an agency liaison. Tim will not only handle agency sales, but he will be taking on the duties of state screener, and basically anything having to do with agencies, whether purchasing or turning in property.

Lastly, we have a new hire that will be performing a lot of the federal property receiving. His name is Joe Vaillancourt, and he comes to us from the Oregon Department of Revenue. Joe has many years of experience receiving and routing of property and supplies, and he will be busy learning both state and federal property receiving and marketing in the coming weeks.

Be sure to stop by and say “hi” to Joe on your next visit to Surplus Property!

Reminder: Surplus Property is open 8-5PM Monday-Friday for your shopping convenience. We don’t even make you wear masks anymore, so come pay us a visit!

This is to alert you to be on the lookout for a potential phishing email.


Loomis Armored, which holds DAS PS Price Agreement 3396, recently notified DAS PS that one of its employees responded to a phishing scam email with some customer information. The scammer was impersonating the CFO of Loomis.

The email requested information for Loomis customers with outstanding balances. The response provided customer business names, phone numbers, account balances, the internal Loomis account number, and contact information for the individuals responsible for payment. We do not have a list of any specific customers for whom the information was provided. Since DAS PS received a notice, we assume that some of our customers’ information may have been shared, so we are alerting you out of an abundance of caution. DAS PS does not know if your information was shared with the scammer, or if any purchasers have received emails from the scammer.

While we have shared the notice with DAS Cyber Security Services, DAS PS has not notified any other security team.

If you receive a request to change Loomis’s payment information, or you believe you recently directed a payment to a “new” Loomis account:

  1. Follow your agency’s instructions for reporting phishing emails to the appropriate personnel.

 

  1. Loomis asks that you contact them at invoicequestion@us.loomis.com or by phone at (844) 578-5728.

Importantly, Loomis stated that it did not send customer banking, credit card or other sensitive information to the scammer. Loomis clarified it does not request this form of information through email, and that it would never request a change in where or how to make your payment without reaching out to you with a formal letter via US mail, or a telephone call.

DAS PS is encouraging Authorized Purchasers to review information on how to spot and avoid phishing attempts.

DAS Cyber Security Services shared the following examples of how to spot emails that are phishing attempts:

  • The email address is different than the official one.
  • The domain is misspelled, mismatched, or unusual.
  • The email contains grammar or spelling mistakes.
  • The email includes infected attachments or suspicious links.
  • The message has an unexpected sense of urgency, or tries to get you to panic.
  • The message requests credentials, payment information or other personal information.
  • The message has an unfamiliar or unusual greeting or salutation.
  • The message states the sender has noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts.
  • The message claims there's a problem with your account or your payment information.

It is with some reluctance that Franz Bakery has announced the need to increase pricing. A 15% increase across all products will go into effect May 16, 2022. This pricing will be loaded to OregonBuys so agencies can plan accordingly. These prices are effective in all regions.

 

Feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.

Dear Procurementarians,

 

As we start to wind down from the COVID-19 pandemic, you might be thinking of what to do with all the hand sanitizer that’s left over.One thing I have found that I had never given any thought to was that because of the alcohol/flammability properties of hand sanitizer, it is actually considered hazardous waste. Take this federal government language for instance:

 

“Federal disposal guidelines require all alcohol-based hand sanitizers be treated as hazardous waste due to the ignitability characteristic (40 CFR § 261.21). Proper disposal can only be achieved through a waste hauler qualified to manage hazardous waste”.

https://www.dm.usda.gov/procurement/docs/Final_USDA_Handsanitizer_Guidance.pdf

Given this, we here at Surplus Property ask that agencies NOT send their hand sanitizer to us. We don’t have the facilities or the means to handle mass quantities of this type of product, and nobody needs hand sanitizer anymore. What we have found is that most all counties in Oregon do have the means to dispose of hand sanitizer. I would suggest Googling your county’s solid waste disposal program and following their suggestions. Perhaps, as a coordinated effort, your facilities could do a “milk run” of the various locations, and gather hand sanitizer to take to your local counties drop-off site(I’m not volunteering anybody, it’s just a suggestion, and even then, only if they’re qualified to do so). The bottom line is that there are options available for disposal, but the options that are NOT available are:

 

  • Dropping off at Surplus Property
  • Dumping down the sink
  • Setting it outside and waiting for it to evaporate
  • Throwing it in the trash

 

As I mentioned, I had never given any thought to it, but hopefully now you can too. I’m sure there are others that can speak to this as well (I’m thinking sustainability people), but I just wanted to bring it to your attention, so you’re not stuck with mass quantities of potential hazardous waste.

 

Thanks everyone, and have a great rest of the week!

Many Public Agencies have received a notice from Relay Resources notifying of their intent to stop providing Document destruction service by March 31, 2022. (See Attached)Unfortunately, there is no Oregon Forward Contractor that can provide that service in the Clackamas, Multnomah and Washington County areas. Further, there is no statewide or regional Price Agreement for these services at this time. Relay has indicated some flexibility and may be able to assist in an agencies transition by making an additional pickup a short time after March 31st, but the public agency should contact them at shredding@relayresources.orgto negotiate that possibility.

 

Public Agencies that have utilized Relay for this service might establish a purchase order for this service with one of the numerous document destruction companies in the Portland Metropolitan area if there is an immediate need for that service after March 31st. Procurement Services is studying the possibility of a statewide Price Agreement, but that process will take several months at least. Conversely, some agencies may wish to solicit for this service by conducting an RFP.

 

I am sorry for the obvious inconvenience of this announcement.

 

Contact either myself or Rena Sawyer at rena.sawyer@das.oregon.gov with questions.

 

Thank you,

​Dear Procurementarians,

 

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT to you and me) has a donation they would like to…..donate. They have many 1 gallon jugs of VitalOxide Residential, Commercial & Hospital Disinfectant they would like to find a good home for. This kills harmful bacteria on hard and soft surfaces, and inhibits & keeps mold and mildew from growing for up to 4 weeks. Yes, I just totally plagiarized the label on the outside of the jug in the photo, but it sounded so good, I just couldn’t resist. Also, it is getting close to the expiration date, so plan on using it soon.

 

If you are interested in some, and can get over to ODOT to pick it up, I’m sure they would be happy to help you out. Rumor has it that these are one gallon jugs, and there are approximately 90 jugs available. The contact person over at ODOT is Jim McIntyre, 503 986-2740. Please, please please, contact Mr. McIntyre if you are interested……if you reply to me saying you’ll take some, there’s not a thing I can do for you. I am just the messenger.

 

Now, go forth and…disinfect!

​Dear Procurementarians, eligible donee's, local governments, nonprofit organizations et al;

I gotta tell ya, lately we have been getting creamed….CREAMED I tell you….with office furniture. You've all seen it. You know what it is. Desks, chairs, file cabinets, book cases, you name it. This prison closes, that office is COVID downsizing, and the results are SEMI-LOADS of office furniture. It's like the Cascade subduction zone and subsequent tsunami of office stuff. So, drastic times call for drastic measures.

If you know me, I don't like to use the “F" word, but here goes…..we are letting items go for fr…..go for fru…..free. There, I said it. Yes, that's right. We are to the point where we will be giving items away for fri….no cost. What's the catch you say? Nothing really that we don't ask of you anyway. Nothing to Draconian, just stipulations. Ready?

  • You MUST be a donee in good standing with StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyProgram (AKA Surplus). This means you need to be an authorized signer on your account (or get a permission slip from one), OR be a SPOTS card holder, and your three year eligibility has not expired. Now is not a good time to find out your eligibility has expired.
  • You will have to be able to haul your spoils off that very instant. I suggest a pickup or like vehicle. No Prius' (Priusi?) unless you find a box of paperclips in a desk drawer that you MUST have.
  • No “Holds". What does this mean? No “I'll just put this hold slip on it and I'll come back tomorrow with my husband's/wife's pickup" No. Holds. Allowed.
  • Fair and equitable distribution. This means you can't take ¾ of the leaning tower of furniture. We need to spread the love and let everybody have a crack at getting no cost stuff.
  • You will be getting items for your agency/program. If they want to get something and have you take it home because you work from home, my name is Paul and that's between y'all. We are not the WFH police. All accountability is on you and your program. If you want to buy something for your home office, you can shop the General Store where stuff ought to be fre…no cost, because it's so dang cheap! Items in the General Store are 50% off through March 4, so give our cashier a call at 503-378-6037 to make an appointment to shop the General Store.
  • Speaking of calling…..did you ever offer something for no cost on Craigslist, and somebody calls and starts asking a bunch of questions about it? Like c'mon, it's fffffff……it costs nothing! Ugh, we hate it when people do that to us too! Under normal circumstances we'd be happy to, but these are not normal circumstances, so please, I'm begging you, don't.
  • Masks and social distancing is still a thing here at Surplus. Yes I know, but please just play along. It's almost over.

Okay, it's not THAT bad. It's stuff we have you do all the time anyway. I can't tell you what all we have, but I can tell you that the reason we're getting so much lately is because of a consolidation and closing of Correctional facilities, so a lot of it is Oregon Corrections Enterprise items….that's the good stuff.

We are open 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday, and the early bird gets the worm. If you have any questions, just let me know (my contact info is below). If you're not certain of your eligibility status, contact Carla Jeannette at 503-378-2753  carla.jeannette@das.oregon.gov and she can let you know what's up.

That about covers it….oh! This starts at 8:00 AM Wednesday February 16, so come one come all and get stuff for your cubies! Short notice I know. It was for us too.

Thanks everybody, have a great day!

The State of Oregon, through the Department of Administrative Services, Procurement Services (DAS PS), participated in a NASPO ValuePoint interstate cooperative procurement conducted by the State of Idaho for laboratory equipment and supplies.

The State of Idaho, as the lead state, awarded Master Agreements.  

DAS PS awarded Participating Addenda for use by Authorized Purchasers (State of Oregon agencies and OrCPP members) to:

VWR International, LLC – PA 6455

Fisher Scientific Company, LLC – PA 6456

The State of Idaho extended the term of the Master Agreements with VWR International, LLC and Fisher Scientific Company, LLC to March 31, 2023.  The terms of Oregon's Participating Addenda with these suppliers are coterminous with the Master Agreements, therefore their terms are also extended to March 31, 2023.

Oregon's Participating Addenda are available in OregonBuys.

Good Afternoon ORCPP Members,

Here is a message from Darren Kennedy at DAS Surplus:


Dear Procurementarians, Donee’s and distinguished Surplus customers,


​It’s that time of year when I introduce your agency/organization/business to the opportunity of becoming a NASASP Associate Member. What is this you ask? Read on!

 

We (the State of Oregon State and Federal Surplus Property program) are what is known as a “SASP”, or State Agency for Surplus Property. There is one of us, in one form or another, in each state. We belong to a national organization called “NASASP”, or “National Association…”, well, you get the idea. The NASASP serves many functions, but the most direct impact it has on Donee’s is lobbying the federal government to supply quality federal surplus items to agencies such as yours. NASASP is funded through dues paid by the states, as well as dues from associate memberships and corporate sponsors. This is where you come in.

 

To become an Associate Member involves a $39.00 a year commitment to the NASASP. Instead of me explaining it all, I will instead send you directly to their webpage that explains the reasons and benefits of becoming an Associate Member. You can access this page by clicking here. Participation is a year-by-year commitment, so you’re not locked in to participating every single year afterward; although that would be nice, it is not required. By becoming an annual Associate Member, you help determine the quantity and quality of items that can come to the Oregon SASP.

 

Now, if you are current eligible Donee with Oregon Surplus property, you may be wondering if your becoming an Associate Member affects your eligibility in any way, and the answer is no, it does not. If you decide to not become an Associate Member with NASASP, it will not affect your eligibility. If you do decide to become a member, it does not automatically make you eligible to be a Donee with Oregon Surplus property. The two things are mutually exclusive, and one doesn’t have anything to do with the other.

 

So please consider becoming an Associate Member in NASASP, and help determine outcomes that ultimately benefit your community through improved access to quality surplus equipment. If you would like to know more, I have attached a flier to this email, or visit the NASASP website at WWW.NASASP.org.

 

Thank you all for your time and attention, and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

​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 Contracts (WOC) pursuant to the provisions of this Price Agreement. 

 

PA#DASPS-3399-20 has been amended to extend term, add additional staff type, adjust rates, and updated the Buyers Guide as well.

 

The Statewide Agreement with sample WOC and all amendments are posted on the OregonBuys system and can be downloaded from there. I have attached the updated Buyers Guide for convenance.

 

If you have any questions or comments please call or email the Contract Administrator for this Price Agreement, Shirley A. Smith at contact information below.

Good Day ORCPP Members,

Did you know the Commission for the Blind has a program designed to help Oregonians who are legally blind start food concession businesses? It's called the Business Enterprise Program (BEP) and their mission is to provide food service and vending opportunities in government buildings across the State to Oregonians who are blind.

That's awesome! How can I help?

Have you or your coworkers been asking for vending machines, a coffee cart, or some other type of food concession in your workplace? If the answer is 'yes', please complete the survey (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MYBMTRB) and reach out to the BEP Business Development Specialist Teresa Field at teresa.field@ocb.oregon.gov to start the conversation.

Why do I need to complete a survey?

You'll not only help us establish more business opportunities for Oregonians who are blind, but the survey provides you with an easy mechanism to fulfill legislatively required annual reporting:

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". 

Thank you for helping create business opportunities for Oregonians who are blind. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please reach out to me.

Dear Procurementarians,

We’ve been receiving some HUGE shipments of items lately, so much so that we’re starting to run out of room. That’s not necessarily a bad problem to have, unless you’re Jennifer the Property Specialist over Federal Donation Property…….if Jennifer has a problem, EVERYBODY has a problem, hence the email.

So, sit back relax and enjoy all of these offerings from your State and Federal Surplus Property program!

 Emergency Food
We have received 940 cases of dehydrated (freeze dried) emergency food. These come 6 cans to a case, and there is a huge variety of different foods. I’ve been reading up on these, and the reviews are actually pretty good as far as taste & whatnot is concerned. The nice thing about these is that they are easily stored, and the expiration date….well, there might as well NOT even be one, it’s so far out (June/December 2028). If you click on the image below, it’ll take you to the full description and menu items available. These are specifically made for institutional long term storage (Hospitals, nursing homes, the coat closet in your agency, etc.) In case you’re interested, this is a link to the manufactures website. I would try this myself (because I will usually try anything) and report back, but that’s against the rules.

The Oregon Number on these is 22-049-01, and the Service Charge is $30.00 per case. To see more information on these, as well as contents/menu’s, click on the image below.
 
“Bugblatter: A rather large creature that likes to eat things. The
Ravenous Bugblatter Beast is so mind-bogglingly stupid that
it thinks that if you can't see it, it can't see you. Therefore, the
  best defense against a Bugblatter Beast is to wrap a towel
            around your head”. Huh! Good to know.

Cotton-ish Towels

Ah yes, this is another big room taker-upper. So we currently have about 143 bundles of cotton-ish towels in stock, and the storage spaces in the warehouse look like we’re storing giant marshmallows. These towels are 20 X 40, they are 86% cotton (which is where the “ish” comes from), 14% polyester, they’re made in Pakistan……not sure what else to say about these. They’re white-ish. OH, there are 25 dozen to a bundle (that’s 300 towels to you and me). These aren’t the fancy-pants towels you’d find in your linen closet at home, but if you have a prison….or a school….a group home….a place where the people aren’t too picky, these come in super handy. I already gave you seven uses above, so you can cross “getting eaten by a Bugblatter” off your list. 

The Oregon Number on these…well, there are several, so if you’re interested just say “Towels” and we’ll know what you’re talking about….they’re not real hard to miss. The Service Charge on one bundle/25 dozen/300 each is $50.00 per bundle…..that’s like 16.5 cents per towel!

Ice Caddies

In true Surplus Property fashion, I bring you ice chests in the middle of winter! I am not above plagiarizing somebody else’s work, so here is the complete description on these, as supplied by the incomparable Jennifer Beyer: “Cambro SlidingLid Ice Caddies, Mdl: ICS200TB110, OD Green, 200# ice capacity, front sliding lid for easy access, double-wall construction made of high density polyethylene for chip and dent resistance, quarter turn faucet on the lower front for water drainage, 34" D x 23" W x 39.5" H. Unused in box - NO casters included.” So, lot’s of uses for these; they would hold a lot of potato salad at your next company picnic, they could hold a lot of body parts for transplant patients, or they could just hold ice….200# according to Jennifer, and they would come in handy for when the sun makes a return, like I’m pretty sure it will, eventually.

The Oregon Number on these is 21-524-01, and the Service Charge on these is $150.00 each. Get ‘em while they’re cold!     

Portable Relief Field Station

So much potty humor, so little time……. Okay. So, I am going to once again call upon the writing stylings of one miss Jennifer to inform us as to the nature of this item. “Western Shelter Systems Portable Relief Field Station, WS-BRRF, Freestanding aluminum frame with vinyl cover set, one piece collapsible floor and toilet cabinet, collection poly-box and containment bags, field caddy dispenser system, relief station maintenance kits all contained in an 86" x 30" x 15" storage case. 235# UNUSED.” So, they are portable bathroom facilities. Instead of dragging around the little porta-potty on the little trailer, you can just open one of these suitcases and voila! you’re good to “go”. I thought it was strange that there wasn’t any TP included with these…..it must be what they mean when they say they’re “going paperless”, but I’ll leave that up to you to figure out. This kit comes with everything you need to set up a Portable Relief Field Station, including reading materials (a user manual….you know, for the field station).

The Oregon Number on these is 22-008-01, and the Service Charge is $350.00 each, and we only have 53 of these left!
 
These items and much more are available through the StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyProgram. All Federal Donation property is available to eligible government agencies, nonprofit organizations and Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB’s) through the federal Small Business Administration (SBA). If you have questions regarding the three-year eligibility status of your respective program, contact our eligibility specialist Carla Jeannette carla.jeannette@das.oregon.gov, or 503-378-2753. If you have any questions regarding these or any items at Surplus, please contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion joe.mannion@das.oregon.gov, or 971-301-0193. If you have any general questions, or just feel the need to get something off your chest, please feel free to contact me darren.kennedy@das.oregon.gov or 503-378-6022; if you want to be taken off or added to this listserv, or you just want to know how all of this surplus stuff works, etc., just let me know!

Okay, okay, one potty joke, direct from my 11 y.o. grandson; Did you hear about the new film 'Constipated'? It hasn’t come out yet…….sorry. He thought it was funny. I don’t think he knows what it means, but he thought it was funny.
Have a great week everybody!

Good morning,

We've been getting a lot of questions from agencies and OrCPP members about the status of the UPS price agreement, so I wanted to make sure you all had this information on your radar.  In addition, please share this information with the appropriate staff in your agencies.

The NASPO ValuePoint Price Agreement with UPS was set to expire on November 27, 2021.  No new agreement has been reached, and UPS has declined to extend its current master agreement.  As a result, Oregon's agreement (DASPS-2692-16), is expired.  Agencies should immediately stop using UPS accounts derived from DASPS-2692-16 and transition to using our new agreements with GLS and /or Fed Ex for continued services.  The Buyers Guide for these agreements is attached.

The State of Utah and NASPO ValuePoint are in continued discussions with UPS and are uncertain when a resolution will be reached. If agreement is reached on a Master Agreement, Oregon still has to negotiate the Oregon specific terms and conditions.   We will update you if, and when, a new UPS price agreement is available.

Please connect with Kaliska King if you have specific questions:  Kaliska.king@das.oregon.gov

Thank You.

A message from DAS Procurement Services

Title: Small Package Delivery Contracts, expire of contracts, New Fed Ex and GLS and Update on UPS

Date: November 22, 2021

Category: PA's expiring and 2 new ones in place

11/22/2021 update: UPS is used by all Agencies, I wanted to send a second notice of it expiring. The State of Utah confirmed today, the current Agreements WILL EXPIRE 11/27/2021.

The current small package delivery contracts will expire on November 27, 2021, for UPS, Fed Ex and Global Logistical Solutions (GLS). The contract numbers are:

Fed Ex: DASPS-2691-16, UPS DASPS-2692-16 and 8315 for GLS

New Contracts with Fed Ex and GLS have been put in place and are in Oregon Buys. The contract numbers are:

Fed Ex: PO-10700-00004355

GLS: PO 10700-00004458

If you have a current account with them you don't need to do anything, your account will automatically reflect the new contract.

UPS EXPIRING:

The State of Oregon does a Participating Addendum (PA) off of the State of Oregon's NASPO agreement for these services. As of today, the state of Utah is still in negotiations for the Master Agreement for these services. Once this is completed, I will do a PA for Oregon to use the contract. Please be aware, this contract will likely expire on November 27, 2021 and the rates you have now will no longer be in effect.

Recommendation: If your agency doesn't have a Fed Ex or GLS account, I recommend you open an account. I have attached the Buyers Guide that gives you instructions on how to contact our representatives to set up an account.

I will give you more information on UPS as its available. If you have any questions please let me know.

Data Classification Level 2 - Limited​

Dear Procurementarians,

It’s that time once again, where I get to show you some items that have washed up on the shores of Surplus lately. These items are Federal Donation Property, and are only available to Donee’s that are currently eligible to purchase with our program. If you’re not sure if you are still eligible, or if you even qualify, just let us know and we can get you pointed in the right direction.

Speaking of eligibility, I wanted to make you all aware of an eligibility change that has recently occurred. So, it used to be that in order to become eligible to participate in our program, you had to be a government agency or qualified nonprofit organization; that actually hasn’t changed. What has changed is that now we can qualify Veteran Owned Small Businesses (or “VOSB’s”) to participate in the program. What a VOSB would need to do is to get set up through the federal Small Business Administration (SBA). Once they do this, SBA would let us know, and then they would have to complete our eligibility process. If they survive all this red tape and jumping through hoops, they can be made eligible to purchase through the Surplus Property program (honestly, it’s not that bad. It’s actually pretty easy). So if you know of somebody that might be interested, have them contact our eligibility expert Carla Jeannette at carla.jeannette@das.oregon.gov, or 503-378-2753, and she can tell them where to go. I mean, she can tell them what they need to do. Remember, this is for any qualified Veteran Owned Small Business located within Oregon!

While I have you, there’s another thing I would like to make you aware of. This comes up every so often, so it’s something I’d like to remind everybody about. Every now and then, we have an donee customer show up, and the exchange is something like this:

Agency: Hi! We’ve been shopping, see our gigantic shopping cart full of stuff?
Surplus: Impressive! I didn’t know you could get that much stuff in one cart.
Agency: It’s a survival skill. So I’m ready to check out now.
Surplus: Perfect. What agency are you with?
Agency: We’re with the Department of X.
Surplus: *clickclickclick* Hmmm, I’m sorry. I don’t see the Department of X in our system.
Agency: That’s weird, we signed up like 3 weeks ago.
Surplus: Could it be under a different name? Perhaps the Department of Y?
Agency: Nope. Definitely Department of X. We paid our dues and everything.
Surplus: Dues….what dues?
Agency: You know, we pay dues, and then we’re able to purchase off of state price agreements.
Surplus: Oh. Yeah……..

That’s right. The agency has signed up for the ORCPP (ORegon Cooperative Procurement Program). It happens all of the time. We are like twins; we look a lot alike, and we even have the same mother (state of Oregon), but we are two distinct and separate programs. We love them (and I think they love us – YES Darren DAS ORCPP loves DAS Surplus!) but we are our own individual entities. That said, we have a lot of donee’s coming in, thinking that participation in one program gains entry into the other, and this unfortunately isn’t the case. We both like our autonomy, and cherish our sense of individualism, and while we brag about the virtues of belonging to one or the other (or both), we are like twins, just not Siamese twins. Got it? Awesome! Let me know if you have any questions!

Thank you Darren (brother) for explaining that each of our programs (OrCPP and Surplus Property) are independent of one another, but as close as peas & carrots!

And now, let’s get down to business…..

Whisk Brooms

I always wondered about that….baby witches! Who knew? That’s probably why we ordered a cojillion of these. They are brand new/unused, they’re made of straw with metal reinforcement, ergonomically and ambidextrously designed, and that’s about it. They’re whisk brooms, not rockets, so they’re pretty plain. I mean WE love them, but we’ve lived with them for some time now. The Oregon Number on these is 21-507-01, we have 1,831 in stock (Okay, so not a cojillion, but a lot), and the Service Charge is just $2.00 apiece.

Balaclava’s

Here we have some XGO Tactical baclava barracuda balaclava’s. These are flame retardant (that’s good. I personally hate when my head catches on fire), Phase 1, acclimate, lightweight, high performance base layer, protected by Ag47 Silver Microbial Protection, coyote brown, and made in the USA. I understand about 10% of what I just typed, but I know what they are, so hopefully you do too. The Oregon Number is 19-554-05, we have 33 in stock, and the Service Charge is just $10 apiece.  

Map Cabinet

The next item is a three drawer map cabinet. These always seem to be a popular item, even as demand for regular file cabinets seems to be waning. The Oregon Number is 21-464-01, has three drawers, is grey, is metal, is sitting on a wood pallet, in a pallet rack….sorry, just not much to say about this. We have just the one left, and the Service Charge is $100.00. Cat not included.

Waterloo Tool Chests

We have a few Waterloo tool chests in stock. This brand isn’t Snap-On, but it isn’t Harbor Freight either…..I’d say they are quite a ways north of average…..very good quality, and definitely a well-known brand of tool chest. These are brand new in the box, 10-drawer with open lid top storage. A quality item at a great price! The Oregon Number is 21-529-01, the Service Charge is $150.00, and we have 38 left in stock. 

So how could I ever refuse? I feel like I win when I lose………
                                                                               
Anti-Fatigue Mats

Next we have these anti-fatigue mats (they are not now, nor will they ever be door mats!). Nobody has ever taken advantage of their generosity, their money or their affections. They are happy in the knowledge that they will provide relief from standing on hard surfaces all day. Do you work at a sit/stand desk? Do you find yourself standing in one place on a concrete floor? They are always there for you, to provide relief to those aching bones. And what do they ask in return? I’m sure a simple “thank you” would suffice. These are brand new in the box, 3/8" thick, 24” wide x 36” long. The Oregon Number is 21-503-01, we currently have 48 in stock, and the Service Charge is $15.00 apiece. We also have “Switchboard Mats” which are 36” wide x 75’ long (Oregon Number 21-503-02), and we have 3 of those in stock. The Service Charge on those is $250 each. Why do they call them “Switchboard Mats”? Because back in the day, switchboard operators had to be on their feet all day, so they rolled these out on the floor (switchboards were really long back then). I just totally pulled that out of my hat. I don’t really know why they call them that.

PS- The one I pulled out of the box has those triangular holes cut into them. Maybe they’re to be used in one direction only? I don’t really know.

Deluxe Drain Pans

We have these lovely drain pans, new in box, and you can have them in any color you like, as long as it’s black. These have handles on opposite sides at no extra charge, and if you buy today, I’ll even throw in the cardboard box! The Oregon Number on these is 21-428-01, and we only have 248 of them in stock, with a Service Charge of just $5.00 each!

Floor Lamps

The next item is these beautiful floor lamps. The technical nomenclature is “Medical/Surgical Light”. I think they can get more $$ if they call it that and chrome plate everything. But hey, they are nice, and brand new in the box, and you KNOW you’re not going to pay inflated prices at Surplus Property! The Oregon Number is 21-352-01, we only have 81 of these in stock, and the Service Charge………just $15.00 apiece! WHAT?!?????!!! You read that right, just $15.00! At that price you can get a bunch of these!

Replacement Vehicle Seats

The next item are these vehicular seats. Yes, I know these are not bucket seats in the truest sense, but they are really nice. They’re covered in a durable cloth material, have 5 point safety harnesses, and I think they were a direct replacement for specialized military vehicles. Anyway, the color (Tan) isn’t ugly, and I’m sure they’d work great to replace the milk crates they put in some equipment. They are manufactured by Amsafe Inc, and are brand new in the box. The Oregon Number is 21-412-01, the Service Charge is $250.00, and we have just 10 of these in stock.

Various Light Towers

This next item is not a lighthouse (although that would be AWESOME), but this is the next best thing to it. These light towers illuminate large areas with 10 billion lumens of light, so think construction sites, accident scenes, or if you want to attract tons of moths……this is for you! We have a couple different flavors of these, and the configuration is basically the same; a little trailer that has a generator inside, and a boom on top with BIG lights mounted to it. The Oregon Number(s) on these are 21-204-03A, 03B, and 03D, or 21-265-01, and the Service Charge on these range from $750.00 to $1500.00 each! Please Note: not for use on the coast. Godzilla seems to be a little touchy about them.
 
John Deere Road Grader

Here we have a piece of road construction equipment in the form of a John Deere road grader. Instead of me typing all the information out, I will copy/paste from the notes in Reuse:

“Road grader, Mdl: 130G, Ser: 74V01084, RAT-02. All fluids appear full, batteries may be drained or completely dead, and 3 out of 6 tires low and/or flat/off the rim or bead broke. 
  Key is missing for battery switch, you'll have to get your own but we have one that works that can be used. Started with a jump, hydraulics appear to be functional”.

Whew, that was tough. Couldn’t have said it better myself. So all in all, this starts and appears to function fine, it just has a lot of broken-bead tires. So, if you purchase it, you can re-seat the tire beads in our lot, or we can load onto your conveyance the way that it is. Either way, this appears to be a good machine, it’s just been sitting in the desert of Northern California for some time. The Oregon Number on this is 21-438-02, and the Service Charge is just $7,000.00. We don’t get them in very often, so now’s the time to move on it!
     
All these items and more are currently available at the StateofOregonDepartmentofAdministrativeServicesEnterpriseAssetManagementStateandFederalSurplusPropertyProgram. We are open to donee’s 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday for your shopping convenience. These items (and all Federal Donation Property items) are available to qualified and currently eligible donee’s. If you need any additional information on these or any Surplus Property items, please contact out agency salesperson Joe Mannion joe.mannion@das.oregon.gov or 971-301-0193. If you’re wondering what the status of your eligibility is, or if you qualify to receive Donation Property, please contact our eligibility genius Carla Jeannette carla.jeannette@das.oregon.gov, or 503-378-2753 and she can get you fixed up.

As always, if you need any information, moral support, positive affirmations or reality checks, you are always free to contact me at darren.kennedy@das.oregon.gov or 503-378-6022, and I’ll do what I can. I’ll be out of the office from 10/27-11/4, so if you’re not able to reach me, just repeat this mantra by Stuart Smalley: “I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!”. That ought to hold you over until I get back.

Thanks everybody, and have a great week!

Dear Procurementarians,

A while back I sent out an email regarding bridge beams that ODOT has in Eugene. They have had several interested parties, but since then they have found other (good) information regarding a timeframe for removal, availability, etc. That, and they are saying it’ll take more than a pick-up to haul these away…..

Attached are a ton of pictures, as well as the specifications and locations of the beams. The drop dead date for removal is now January. If you have any interest in these FREE beams, please contact Mr. Eck (contact info below) and he get you fixed up!

88 beams left and they are Free!
We have listened and are allowing more time to arrange for the transportation of the beams
New photo inventory
Send all inquiries to Steve Eck and specify which lots you are interested in and approximate date of pick up (a range of time is fine) – I         will reserve those specific lots
Please remove by January 31, 2022
After January 31st, 2022, a nationwide auction for any remaining beams will take place

Original Message

Our cousins over at Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT to you and me) have an amazing opportunity for you to take advantage of, should you choose to accept. Way back when, you probably remember new bridges were built across the Willamette river in Eugene (maybe you don’t….take my word for it). Anyhow, remnants in the form of bridge beams have been stacked up on ODOT property, and now they need to go away. ODOT asked if we could send a message out to agencies….I said I might know some people. So, check out all the information below, as well as the VERY informative PDF (attached). Mr. Eck was good enough to send links to show where they’re located, detailed spec sheets, etc. Best of all, these are FREE. I mean, you have to arrange the big crane(s) to pick these up and load on a flatbed trailer, but they would like to see them gone just as soon as possible.

If you think your State/City/County/Special Road District could use these, please give Mr. Eck a call or email (contact information below) and I’m sure he’d be glad to help you out. I’m thinking these would go a long way to supporting your infrastructure/bridge replacement/bridge building plans. Think of the hundreds of thousands of dollars you could save (insert your agency name here)! It’s a great opportunity, I’m just sayin.

Have a great day, and contact Mr. Eck asap if interested!

​Good Morning ORCPP Members,

As you may know, the State of Oregon will be implementing vaccine mandates for State Agency contractors effective October 18th. Like all employers, Oregon Forward Contractors (OFCs) are being impacted by vaccine choices. OFCs are working hard to provide contracted services despite vaccine-related staffing shortages.

Occasionally, despite everyone's best efforts, staffing issues may impact contracted services with Local Government Agencies. OFCs will attempt to minimize the impact to all public agency customers. If contract performance may be impacted, they will inform their customers of any changes that might have an effect on the quality of the service provided.

Should you receive reports of service quality deficits or notice contract performance issues, please reach out to your OFC contact to discuss the situation. You can expect a cooperative, timely response. The OFC will attempt to remedy the problems experienced and will always endeavor to meet the requirements of the contract. They may need flexibility from your agency but should provide solutions to bring their performance into compliance with the contract.

Thank you! Local Government Agencies have been great partners with Oregon Forward Contractors. Literally thousands of individuals with disabilities have benefitted from the good paying jobs created by Oregon Forward contracts developed by Local Government agencies. Your efforts to support the success of OFCs and their employees are greatly appreciated.

Please let me know of any concerns or questions.

Thank you!

​​The State of Oregon and the State of Washington have an interstate compact in place that permits each State’s local governments the opportunity to leverage the other State’s contracts?  NOTE:  These do not include NASPO ValuePoint Master contracts of the other State’s portfolio.   https://apps.des.wa.gov/DESContracts/

 

Background:  Many years ago the State of Oregon and the State of Washington got together to share portfolios of contracts to promote efficiencies for each of our State’s local government entities and our respective procurement shops.  This Interstate Compact makes available some contracts (not all), those with “cooperative use” language for ORCPP members (Oregon local governments) on Washington contracts, and vice versa for MCUA (Washington local governments) on Oregon contracts.

 

So what's this all about?

 

I have been introduced to an Oregon WBE/DBE COBID certified business, Mel Tar Supply that holds a cooperative use contract awarded by the State of Washington with ORCPP named as an authorized purchaser under the contract.  I have personally visited Mel Tar Supply and want to share their Meet & Greet event coming up on September 30th that will feature their product of the versatile Fiber-reinforced Polymer Pre-Fabricated Bridges and Modular Bridges.

 

Are you expanding or upgrading access areas with safe and easy accessibility for all?  Are you using Federal Funds?  If you are, then you may have “terms & conditions” attached to those funds that may require you to seek a woman, veteran, or disadvantaged business owned firm.

 

If you are interested but unable to attend, please reach out to Mel Tar Supply.  I’ll be there too!

There is still space available in our DAS – PS - Fundamentals of Sustainable Procurement course!  The course is a live webinar that will be held on Tuesday, September 21 & Thursday, September 23, 2021 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm each day and costs $125.00.  Students will earn 7 Oregon Public Procurement Training contact hours good towards certification/recertification.

This class will focus on procuring goods and services in a sustainable manner in accordance with the Oregon Sustainability Act of 2001. Topics related to sustainable procurement will be discussed, such as what is sustainable procurement and what does this mean to state agencies?  This class is for anyone who wishes to learn how to conduct procurements using sustainable concepts and processes & in accordance with state directives.  It is highly recommended that students complete DAS PS Principles of Public Procurement OR Fundamentals of Procurement OR Small Procurements before attending this learning event.

If you would like to register for this course, you may do so here (you'll be asked to log into Workday Learning first).  Please make sure you are able to attend before registering.  You will need to pay for the course at the time of registration.

Fact:

Did you know that the United Nations has recognized the 7th of September as the ‘International Day of Clean Air for Blue Skies’ to emphasize the importance of clean air for the health and day-to-day lives of people, as air pollution is the single greatest environmental risk to human health. The 2021 theme is “Healthy Air, Healthy Planet” which emphasizes the health aspects of air pollution, especially considering the COVID-19 pandemic. During the early days of the pandemic, we caught a glimpse of what the world would be like with less cars and buses on the road – and we saw the positive impact that change had on air quality. 


The Department of Administrative Services, Procurement Services (“DAS PS") on behalf of itself, other state agencies, and members of the Oregon Cooperative Procurement Program (“ORCPP") has updated the Buyers Guide for Face Covering, Masks, Shields, Related Products and other Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE").

The updated Buyers Guide is posted on the State of Oregon's eProcurement system “OregonBuys" to download under each individual award. I have attached the updated Buyers Guide for convenience.

​Dear Procurementarians,

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (hey, some might. I don’t judge) Surplus Property has been having a HUGE sale on select property in stock. Government agencies, nonprofit organizations and Veteran Owned Small Business’s have all been taking HUGE discounts on items throughout the warehouse.

It has been so successful that we have decided to extend this sale for another two weeks! Why, you ask? Well, this is where you all come in. You see, we’ve had some people come in and shop, and when they get ready to check out, they’re like “Oh, you’re having a sale?”. I feel that little vein in my temple throbbing. I don’t blame you, I blame myself.

I’m sort of counting on you all to spread the word. I’m sending messages to you because you are the masters of your domain, so don’t be afraid to forward these messages along to those that might benefit from it. I know some of you do, and…..well, I’m not going to rant. I’m just going to say don’t be afraid to hit that “Forward” button!

So to reiterate, this sale is on Federal Donation Property with an Oregon number starting with anything except 21-. So, if you go to our database Reuse and type in 17-, 18-, 19- or 20- you can see all of the items that are on sale; you can see images of the items, quantities, service charges, and know that you can take 50% off those prices! You are certainly welcome to look at the 21- items (In fact, I encourage you to!), but just know that the 21- items are not included in the sale. Got it? Good!

  You’ll see all the property that begins with 17-. You’ll see the entire Oregon number, the quantity, an icon to click for images of that item, and of course the Service Charge of which you can cut in half!

Click on any line item to open that page to all the details of that item

Piece of cake! Again, you might not have any use for an ^^^inverter, but maybe the shop crew does. Maybe they’re getting ready to spend $50 apiece for them, and here they are just $10 each!

If you don’t see what you’re looking for, let us know! Sometimes the federal government has “unique” definitions for items. We speak federalese, so we can translate!

This extended sale will last until COB (1700 hours) on Wednesday 15 September 2021*. Feel free to shop Reuse, or come on down to the warehouse 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday (yes, masks and social distancing are appreciated<<<me being nice because they’re required), and as always feel free to contact our agency salesperson Joe Mannion at 971-301-0193 or email  joe.mannion@oregon.gov, and he will get you taken care of. Sale is for stock on hand, no “holds” allowed on sale items, no bribing staff with booze or sugary substances (they know you don’t have a lost puppy), etc.

​*Federalese translation: The sale lasts until 5:00 PM on Wednesday September 15th.

​Thanks all, have a great rest of the week!

Dear Procurementarians,

 

Today is the 17th. Do you know what that means? It means we’re almost exactly ½ of the way through our 50% off sale on Federal Donation Property! I don’t want to make a nuisance of myself, but I will (I just don’t want to). In case you don’t remember or have forgotten, all Federal Donation property with an Oregon Number that begins with anything other than 21- is slashed in half during the month of August. Folks have been hauling out huge savings so far, and the month is only ½ over!

 

Way down below is the original email I sent out that has all the details of how to search for property, how to take advantage of the savings, etc. Feel free to visit the Surplus warehouse from 8:00-5:00 Monday-Friday, or shop on our website www.oregonsurplus.com/Reuse. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at 503-378-6020 and we will get you fixed up!

   

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.gov. They 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.

Have a great week everybody!

See you online Tuesday morning!

There is space available in our DAS Procurement Services course, Market Research in Public Procurement.  The course costs $150.00 and students will earn 10 Oregon Public Procurement Training contact hours good towards certification/recertification.

 

This course is focused upon using what students have learned in other classes about basic Market Research and moving beyond that to the basics of Market Analysis and to Market Intelligence levels.   Students will learn about available resources and tools to ultimately arrive at “best value” in public contracting.    

 

This learning event is designed to:

  • Help students define and write an overall market research purpose;
  • Aid students in determining a market research approach that aligns with their purpose and that will address any question(s) about the good or service;
  • Introduce students to some tools and considerations in Market Research and Analysis;
  • Have students utilize these tools and resources to collect relevant data and information and pull it into a concise market research report that will include making informed recommendations regarding factors such as: sourcing method, terms and conditions, evaluation criteria, pricing factors, risk considerations, specifications, etc.

An introductory exposure to market research is assumed but a brief overview will be provided.  This learning event requires students to participate during online presentations and in online interactions.  There is a mandatory follow-up assignment that must be completed and submitted within one week of the conclusion of class for contact hours to be awarded. 

 

If you would like to register for this course, you may do so here (you’ll be asked to log into Workday Learning first).  Please make sure you are able to attend before registering.  You will be asked to pay for the course at the time of registration.

 

For more information regarding this message, contact Anya Corbitt, Training Team Administrative Assistant, at 971-349-2428 or via email at anya.corbitt@oregon.gov​

We still have seats available for our Demystifying Terms and Conditions class on Tuesday, August 17.  The course costs $75.00 and students will earn 3.5 Oregon Public Procurement Training contact hours good towards certification/recertification.

 

Students will learn about standard terms and conditions typically used in contracts. This class is taught by a DOJ attorney - it provides an excellent opportunity to ask those questions you always wanted answered about both standard and special terms and conditions!

 

Topics include:

  • Contract Environment
  • Structure of the Contract
  • Drafting Principles
  • Uniform Commercial Code
  • Terms and Conditions
  • Legal Sufficiency

The course is recommended for all employees with responsibilities for administering a contract, project and program managers, support staff, fiscal, billing & payment staff and others.

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.

REMINDER:

We’re only a few weeks away from when OregonBuys replaces the Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN).

If your organization hasn’t made arrangements to get setup in the new system, contact us at info.orcpp@oregon.gov.

Important transition dates:    

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 only.

June 16 – 30: ORPIN is in a blackout period

Processing Procurement documents is on hold as ORPIN is read-only and OregonBuys prepares for launch.

July 1: ORPIN is replaced with OregonBuys  

Begin using OregonBuys to post Solicitations and browse statewide contracts.

​If you’d like to learn more about managing in-process procurement documents during this timeframe, read the transition guidance. We’re here to help answer questions if you need us. Please reach out if we can help.

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.

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.

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!
