In 2015, the Auditor's Office of the Ombudsman hired Tony Green as the new Deputy Ombudsman.
The legislation was prompted by a series of complaints to the Ombudsman’s Office, alleging that state-certified minority- and women-owned firms were acting as fronts for non-certified firms on City projects.
The legislation reduces and eliminates barriers to accessing administrative appeals by establishing baseline requirements and protections. It's consistent with City policies to achieve equity, safeguard the rights of persons, and promote higher standards of justice in the provision of City services.
In 2015, the City Auditor proposed an ordinance to amend City Code to eliminate barriers to accessing administrative appeal processes, including establishing a minimum notice requirement and limiting fees charged to initiate an appeal.
A complaint referred by a City Commissioner to the Ombudsman led to a preliminary investigation which was later referred to the Oregon Department of Justice for further investigation, resulting in a settlement agreement.
