Title: An analysis of forest service and BLM contracting and contractor capacity in Lake County, Oregon: 1994-1999
Author: Kauffman, Marcus; Sustainable Northwest (Organization)
Abstract: This document examines the federal contracting sector in Lake County, considering both the federal land management agencies’ demand for services and the capacity of local contracting firms to carry out the work. It is hoped that this information will aid the development of a highskill high-wage contracting sector in the county. This report analyzes contracts awarded by the Fremont National Forest and the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Lakeview District between 1994 and 1999. It also examines the capacity of 17 contracting firms in Lake County. This assessment seeks to: 1) quantify the Forest Service and BLM demand for contracted services in Lake County; 2) determine how much and what types of work were awarded to contracting firms located within Lake County and Bly from 1994-1999; 3) gauge the capacity of the local contractors to provide the services sought by the federal agencies; 4) offer recommendations to help increase the competitiveness of local firms and make federal contracts more attractive to local firms.
