RFP Process

The LOC procurement process follows the public purchasing rules and regulations of the State of Oregon.  The general process is as follows:

  • The LOC specification committee, along with the Administrative staff, prepare an RFP to solicit bids from potential vendors for a product or service.
  • The RFP incorporates the required cooperative purchasing language that allows government agencies across the nation to utilize (piggyback off) the contract.
  • The RFP is advertised pursuant to the state public contracting procedures including, but not limited to, distribution by email to all known prospective responders, posting on the LOC and NPPGov website, legally required posting in newspapers of general circulation and posting on other sites likely to give notice.
  • Vendors respond to the RFP.
  • The LOC evaluation committee reviews, evaluates, and recommends award taking into consideration the vendor’s ability to meet specific performance requirements as set forth in the RFP.
  • LOC awards the contract to one or more vendors based on the evaluations received from committee.
  • LOC enters into the Master Price Agreements with awarded vendors.
