5.33.020 City Council as Local Contract Review Board.

(Amended by Ordinance Nos. 184403, 185065 and 185898, effective February 20, 2013.)


A. Pursuant to ORS 279A.060, the City Council is designated as the Local Contract Review Board for the City.  The City Council shall exercise all the powers and duties conferred upon it by State law, except to the extent that such powers and duties have been delegated by these rules, or by a separate ordinance, to others. In order to carry out its powers and duties, the City of Portland’s Purchasing Authority, Policies and Rules, Chapter 5.33, and Chapter 5.34 are hereby adopted by City Council.


B.  The procedural rules of the City Council sitting as the Local Contract Review Board are the same as those regulating City Council as provided by Chapter 3.02.


C.   The Attorney General Model Public Contracting Rules do not apply to the City’s Procurement of goods, services, and certain construction services. Instead, the rules contained in Chapter 5.33 apply to those Procurements.  Similarly, the Attorney General Model Public Contracting rules for Construction do not apply.  Instead the Rules contained in Chapter 5.34 apply to those Public Improvements and construction services.  It is the intent of these rules to permit the City to act to the full extent permitted by State law.  To the extent that the rules adopted in Chapters 5.33 and 5.34 appear to give the City less authority than State law, then State law shall prevail and the City may act to the full extent permitted by State law.


D.  The City Council reserves to itself the authority to authorize Contract amendments in excess of 25 percent for Contracts whose original Contract Amount was $500,000 or more or whose total Contract price after an amendment would exceed $500,000.


E. The City Council shall authorize all intergovernmental agreements by ordinance pursuant to ORS Chapter 190, except those to whom authority has been delegated pursuant to Subsection 5.33.040 C.
