In order to reduce exposure to COVID-19, and in accordance with Governor Brown’s Executive Order No. 20-12, the Oregon Military Department has closed all of its offices to unscheduled public access.  In-person interactions between staff and the public are by appointment.


Oregon Military Department 8.5% General Fund Reduction Plan 

The Governor has asked state agencies to submit 8.5% General Fund reduction strategies to the Department of Administrative Services as a result of the impact of COVID 19 to the economy of Oregon.

An 8.5% General Fund reduction to the Oregon Military Department equals $2,093,522 for the remainder of this biennium (through June 30, 2021)

Organizational Leadership worked with each program area to identify specific reductions that were included as part of the agency wide reduction strategy plan.

First and foremost we focused on minimizing the impact to our most important resource, our people, and we were able to create a plan that currently results in no layoffs of existing staff.

We utilized vacancy savings and significant reductions to services & supplies categories to finance our reduction strategy.  Below is a summary of the reductions by category:

         Personal Services - $410,661 (Vacancy Savings)

         Services & Supplies - $1,682,861

As an agency we understand these reductions are severe and will have real consequences to our programs and their ability to meet their missions, and we emphasized that in our communications with the Department of Administrative Services.

The timing of when these reductions may be actioned is still TBD but the earliest a decision may come will be after the May 20 Revenue Forecast.

Reduction exercises are one of the hardest things we do as an organization and I want to express my gratitude to all of you for your professionalism and understanding throughout this process.

We will share more information as soon as we have it.
