Oregon improves public contracting transparency

Deltek Analyst Luke Harris reports.

In an effort to increase transparency in public contracting, Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber recently signed Senate Bill 1518 into law. The bill prohibits state agencies from accepting bids from vendors who were paid to help write the solicitation. The bill will also allow information about jobs created to be reported and used in determining awards. The Department of Administrative Services will also now have to report to the legislature about procurements that have been allowed to bypass competitive bidding rules. Deltek is currently tracking 31 contracting opportunities that could possibly be affected by this law.
