About Us

The Washington County Procurement Division monitors the County procurement and purchasing processes. We are dedicated to developing and maintaining public and vendor trust through fair, ethical, and competitive procurement practices. As providers of vital public services, Washington County's charge is to know, respect, reflect and serve the diverse people of Washington County. Critical to that effort is a clear and honest assessment of our internal culture and a commitment to continuous improvement regarding Equity, Inclusion & Community Engagement within our organizational structure.

NOTE TO VISITORS:

Due to the current COVID pandemic, we are following County protocols by working remotely.  We are unable to greet or meet with visitors in person. Phone or email is the best way to reach us.

To review the Procurement Division policies and procedures on how to do business with the County, see the "Supplier's Guide." The Washington County Procurement Division is responsible for posting and publishing current solicitation opportunities such as Request for Quotes, Invitation to Bids, and Request for Proposals.

We do not send solicitation documents via e-mail from our office, instead we use an online procurement portal. For instructions on how to search for or upload bids on to the procurement portal, follow this link: Washington County e-Submission Instructions.

Note to All Bidders:

Bids will only be accepted via OregonBuys unless otherwise stated in the solicitation document. Vendors and contractors are solely responsible for their own online account security on ProcureNow.

All submission date(s) and time(s) are based on OregonBuys audit log entries, therefore it is strongly recommended for all contractors and vendors to submit their bids as early as possible. Late submissions will not be accepted unless otherwise stated in the solicitation document.

A current listing of solicitation announcements is also posted to the following
OregonBuys website, https://oregonbuys.gov/
ORPIN provides access to procurement and contracting information issued by the State of Oregon, local governments, and political subdivisions. You may browse the site as an anonymous user and see summary information.

Solicitation Results and Intent to Award notices can be found by looking up complete solicitations under Closed status.
 

Washington County is a member and perticipates in the Clean Air Construction (CAC) Program.  The CAC Program is a collaboration among the City of Portland, Port of Portland, Multnomah County, Washington County, TriMet and Metro ("CAC Agencies") to reduce diesel emissions on our agency's construction projects. We aim to accomplish this by:

  • Implementing a standard set of idle reduction and diesel equipment requirements on job sites and
  • Implementing a regional program to verify compliance with the requirements. 

By adopting the same approach and working together, we will minimize related administrative burdens on contractors and CAC Agencies. Contractor equipment must be registered in The Yard. CAC requires all equipment, concrete mixers, and dump trucks on partner agency sites to display an equipment registration that demonstrates compliance. 

For more information and to register your equipment in The Yard visit
