The Oregon statewide procurement system through June 16th, 2021 was called ORPIN - Oregon Procurement Information Network. Starting July 1st, 2021 Oregon transitioned into the new statewide procurement system called OregonBuys.
Exceptions\Variations : The Current ORPIN Contracts report may not include contract information for the Oregon Judicial Department, Oregon State Lottery, Oregon State Treasurer, or semi-independent state agencies, boards, and commissions. Some executive branch agencies have independent contracting authority for specific goods and services (e.g., Transportation, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, Human Services, Fish and Wildlife, Parks and Recreation, Aviation, Economic and Community Development, Housing, Corrections, Veterans Affairs, Military, Education, and state agencies "specifically authorized" by any law outside the Code to "enter into a contract"). As a result, the ORPIN system may not capture contract information about those activities.
In addition, the contract start date may be different than the issued date, which is the date the data entry was completed and the contract was entered into the ORPIN system.
Current ORPIN Report & ODOT Contracts: The current report provides information on some contracts and amendments issued for ODOT, and contract values are estimates only.
Due to ODOT's independent contracting authority, and independent systems for capturing contract information, ORPIN may not reflect data for the following types of contracting:
- Purchases made by Purchase Order (under $75,000)
- Work Orders issued against price agreements not originally recorded in ORPIN
- SB 338 Go Oregon! (less than $50,000)
- Highway Construction Contracting
