Learn about QBS (Qualifications Based Selection)
On January 1, 2012, HB 3316 became effective and requires Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) for the procurement of engineers, architects, land surveyors, photogrammetrists, and transportation planners. This will be a change for many public agencies as QBS was previously only required when certain thresholds were met. Now, HB 3316 requires QBS for all projects in Oregon.
