The City of Portland’s Sustainable Procurement Program is developing a Contractor Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct will be used as part of a robust assessment of a vendor’s “responsibility” prior to contracting with the City of Portland. To be eligible to do business with the City, Contractors will agree to be responsible by following the principles and guidelines in the Code of Conduct that demonstrate social and environmental responsibility. "Responsibility" will be assessed through an associated Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire.
Work Completed So Far: From October-December 2019, with the help of neutral consultants, the City gathered input from subject matter experts and stakeholders on initial drafts of the Contractor Code of Content, Vendor Responsibility Questionnaire, and related program elements. This work comprised the first round of stakeholder engagement. Feedback obtained during round one is currently being used to plan the next drafts of documents and associated next steps.
Next Steps: Procurement Services staff are reviewing the feedback obtained during the first round of stakeholder engagement, revising documents based on that feedback, and planning next steps - including future rounds of stakeholder engagement. Updates will be posted to this page as they are available.
