Oregon Strawberry Commission - Request for Proposals Website Redesign

The Oregon Strawberry Commission (OSC) is soliciting responses to its request for a proposal (RFP) to provide website redesign services.

OSC’s intent for this RFP is to award a Personal Services Contract.

I. OSC Background

The OSC is a commodity commission created in 1967 under ORS 576 and representing 90
producers in the state of Oregon. The OSC is funded by grower dollars and is administered by a board comprised of five growers, one handler, and a public member. State law authorizes the commission to fund commodity promotion and marketing (not branded), education, and research activities related to the commodity.

As an Oregon Commodity Commission, the OSC collects an assessment from strawberry
producers. Commodity Commissions are state agencies and the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) conducts oversight of the commissions. All contracts are reviewed by the ODA and, depending on the amount of the contract, the Oregon Department of Justice (DOJ). Commodity Commissions are audited and budgets are established each year in a public hearing process.

Commodity Commissions follow Oregon’s public meeting and record laws.

The Oregon strawberry industry is comprised of approximately 90 growers and 10 handlers who produce strawberries on 1,900 of acres in the Willamette Valley. The majority of Oregon strawberries are sold as processed berries.
