How to Bid on County Projects

Clackamas County uses an electronic bulletin board managed by the State of Oregon called Oregon Procurement Information Network rather than sending documents from our office.

To view current bids and intent to award notices, go to OregonBuys and click on the Browse Opportunities or Browse Opportunity Notices and Results links.  You are encouraged to respond via email to the Procurement Analyst working on the bid.  If you respond through the mail or by drop-off, please contact the Procurement Analyst to make sure your response was received.


OregonBuys 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. If you want to view or download the entire solicitation, you will need to register as a supplier.

Keep in Mind

Clackamas County encourages bids from minority, women and emerging small businesses.

Responses to solicitations for goods should be submitted on a “freight on board” basis: suppliers own goods while in transit and are responsible for loss or damages prior to delivery. Prices offered must include all shipping and handling, with goods becoming the property of Clackamas County upon acceptance of delivery.

We encourage you to network with small business associations such as the Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs, Business Diversity Institute and others.
