- TAG News
TAG is now registered in the OUS retainer program.
The Retainer Program includes a list of pre-approved consultants and contractors who have already entered into a contract to provide services at a fixed rate of compensation and on certain terms. When Oregon University System (OUS) institutions have a project, they contact those firms on the retainer to quickly procure and execute a supplement to the contract for the specific project. When requesting bids, institutions must contact a certain number of firms in the Retainer Program based on the estimated contract price for the project (OAR Division 63).
The Oregon University System can issue retainer contracts to facilitate cost savings and other efficiencies when performing small capital construction projects. Small projects are defined as construction projects under $1,000,000 for professional consulting services, and under $1,000,000 for construction services
