Oregon's procurement policies and practices were reviewed, with an emphasis on procurements administered by the Oregon Department of General Services.
General Services has recognized its need for the following kinds of information essential to requirements determination and planning: historical usage and future requirements, inventories of unused equipment, and lease versus purchase alternatives.
