Changes in State of Oregon agencies use of OregonBuys

Date: 09/06/2023

Changes to how you do Business with the State of Oregon

As of September 19, most state agencies will use OregonBuys to issue electronic purchase orders and other supplier notifications.

What does this mean to you?

  1. The way you receive purchase orders and submit invoices may differ depending on which agency you’re doing business with.
  2. OregonBuys (donotreply@oregonbuys.gov) will send important notifications and electronic purchase orders to the email address listed on your supplier account. Be sure to keep the email on your account current and mark donotreply@oregonbuys.gov as a trusted sender so our messages don’t go into your junk folder.
  3. If you receive an electronic purchase order via OregonBuys, you have the option to convert or “flip” the PO into an invoice and send it back to the agency through the system. This is known as PO Flip and using it may help you get paid faster. Click here to learn about PO Flip and visit our website for more system instructions, including how to access and acknowledge purchase orders and how to locate and respond to change orders. For invoicing options external to OregonBuys, contact the purchasing agency.
