UI Modernization Project Update

APRIL 2021


UI Solution Progress

Negotiation Outline


We are still working on contract negotiations with FAST Enterprises. Click on the graphic to learn more about the stages we've completed.


Next the draft contract goes through a series of mandatory reviews by: 

  • CSG, (Our independent quality management service)
  • Project Portfolio Performance, Enterprise Information Services
  • Enterprise Security Office
  • Legislative Fiscal Office

The last step to reach a final contract is the “legal sufficiency review.” During this review, Department of Justice goes through the contract in detail looking for any legal risks.


We will be submitting for our Stage Gate 3 approval in April and plan to have a signed contract in May with a project kickoff this summer.

This communication is part of our ongoing commitment to keep you informed of the progress of our agency’s Modernization Program. The goal of our Modernization Program is to replace the aging computer systems that support receipt of unemployment insurance taxes, payment of unemployment insurance benefits, and delivery of employment services. Further, this effort will transform business processes to take advantage of opportunities and benefits available through new system capabilities and better meet the needs of our customers - Oregonians and Oregon businesses.
