Information for Contractors, Subcontractors and Partners 

Contracts and Procurement Services provides purchasing guidance and contract development for the department.

Information Security Requirements and Other Certifications

The Oregon Employment Department provides for the integrity and security of its information assets. This is accomplished by establishing appropriate policies and procedures for preserving the integrity and security of each automated process, paper file, or data base of information. 
Information Security Policies and procedures establish and maintain a standard of due care to prevent misuse or loss of state agency information assets and provide management directives for information security to conform with business requirements, laws, and administrative rules.
All contractors, vendors, partners, volunteers, and non-OED staff who access confidential information or agency data must certify they have read and understand the Information Security Policy and related documents prior to performing services for the Department.

Criminal Background Checks

All contractors, subcontractors, vendors, and consultants doing business with the department must conduct and pay for criminal record checks, at their expense, for any of their employees who have access to any systems or data; or who may enter any of the department's buildings. We also require written assurance that subject individuals are fit for services to the department.  Workforce partners are excluded from this policy.

Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN)

ORPIN is Oregon's resource for viewing public agency opportunities. Most state agencies and many local governments use ORPIN to reach suppliers and procure goods and services.
The site provides information needed to register as a supplier (or log in to if you are already registered) to state agencies, boards, and commissions. You can also bid on opportunities that match your business offerings, or answer frequently asked questions. Click here to access ORPIN.
