The Auditor’s Office adopts revisions to the following administrative rules as interim rules, effective September 8, 2023, and for a period of not more than 180 days:
City Charter Section 2-506(a) authorizes the Auditor to adopt interim rules without prior notice when finding that failure to act promptly will result in prejudice to the public interest. Portland City Charter Section 2-506(b) requires the City Auditor to establish human resources rules and policies for the Office of the Auditor that are consistent with City human resource rules and policies, except where the Auditor determines in writing that a City human resources rule or policy impairs the Auditor’s independence or duties.
Due to recent updates from the Oregon Legislature, the City Auditor has determined that there is a need to act promptly to adopt updates to the Oregon Paid Family and Medical Leave section of ARA 3.06 Leaves, and that failure to do so will result in prejudice to the public interest. The City Auditor therefore adopts ARA 3.06 revisions as an interim rule without prior notice.
These rules and the full list of Adopted Rules for the Auditor's Office is available on the City of Portland website, or rules can be requested from the City Auditor's Office Operations Management department.
