Purchasing & Contracts

EOU Purchasing and Contracting provides campus support for contracting, informal Invitations to Bid (ITB’s), formal Request for Proposals (RFP’s), purchase order approvals, and record retention.

We provide information about the purchasing process and Personal Service Agreements (PSA’s) on campus and act as a resource for assisting with finding vendors, products, and services. EOU’s purchasing policy and guidelines adhere to rules issued by the State of Oregon, as well as guidelines established by the Oregon University System.

Important Notes on Personal Service Agreements:

  • A Personal Service Agreement (PSA), is a contract between EOU and an independent contractor for professional, specialized, educational, research, or other services that EOU cannot provide.
  • A Personal Service Contract can be for a length of time, for a one-time performance of services, or for services provided on a continuing basis.
  • Personal Service Agreements are legally binding contracts, required by state and IRS guidelines that outline the service to be performed, the amount of pay expected for that service, and the required insurance coverage necessary to protect EOU.
  • It is important to note that any service performed at EOU prior to the full execution of a PSA could potentially become a liability issue for EOU. Please do not use PSA’s as after-the-fact forms for payment, but please complete sign and submit them to Accounts Payable prior to service being performed.
