Oregon public schools, special districts, and municipalities often must contract for construction projects, other public improvements, and procurements of goods and services. From start to finish, the firm regularly counsels and assists with these projects. In each case, state and federal laws and regulations require that detailed procedures be followed in order to achieve the laudable public policy goal that all expenditures of public funds must result in the greatest value for the least cost. Once the public body selects a contractor or supplier, a formal contract must be prepared and thereafter carried out.
Especially when large construction projects are involved, these contracts can be highly detailed, complex, and technical. The firm is proud of its long and successful record in advising its public sector clients regarding such projects from groundbreaking to completion of the public improvement.
