Requesting Procurement Services

All agencies and personnel doing procurements under DAS authority, who don't have delegated authority to conduct the procurement themselves, must submit a request for our services or request an agency specific delegation. Review OAR 125-246-0170 to find out if your agency has delegated authority, or check if your agency has a previously approved agency specific delegation from the State Chief Procurement Officer.

Here are some tips on how to create a great Scope of Work (SOW):

What to Expect

We'll send an acknowledgement receipt within two business days of your submission. Within four business days, we'll assign an experienced PS buyer to your request.

They'll work with you to ensure the minimum information requirements are met and to create a mutually agreed upon timeline for completion. See the Procurement Services Service Level Agreement webpage for more information.
