Minority Evaluator Program

On December 16, 2009, Portland City Council passed a resolution requiring all City Bureaus to include at least one minority evaluator in the procurement award process.

As a result of passing this resolution, the City of Portland Procurement Services implemented the Minority Evaluator Program (MEP). The Minority Evaluator Program (MEP) will serve our internal staff and external customers by ensuring that there are diverse and qualified evaluators to serve on the various panels that award city contracts.

If you are interested in the program or have further questions about your participation call Tiffani Penson at 503.823.7785 or email

You may sign up to volunteer using the Minority Evaluator Program Application online form.
