POLICY STATEMENT

(1) The general policy of OUS Public Universities will be to expand economic opportunities for Historically Underrepresented Businesses by offering them the contracting and subcontracting opportunities available through Public University Contracts. Notice of all Contracts over $25,000 procured through a Competitive Process will be provided to the Advocate for Minority, Women, and Emerging Small Business, unless otherwise provided, by fully completing the information set out on the OUS procurement website. Public Universities are encouraged to unbundle contracts, when appropriate, to expand contract opportunities for Historically Underrepresented Businesses and Oregon-based businesses. 

(2) OUS will not knowingly contract with or procure goods or services from any Entity that discriminates on the basis of age, disability, national origin, race, marital status, religion, sex, or sexual orientation. 

(3) Offerors will certify, as part of the Solicitation Response that such Offeror has not discriminated against Historically Underrepresented Businesses in obtaining any required subcontracts. 

(4) Public Universities will comply with the OUS Equity Contracting and Purchasing Policy and Data Reporting Procedures.
