Administrative Responsibilities

All employment, staffing, purchasing, budget and other non-biological administrative functions of the "Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office" ( consisting of our main Portland office, as well as our field offices in Roseburg, Bend, Newport and LaGrande) are handled by the Administration Division in the Portland office. We coordinate administrative responsibilities for our employees statewide. We also service the Oregon Fish & Wildlife Office and field offices with support in database and records management (including management of requests for information and records under the Freedom of Information Act), position advertisement and recruitment, pay, leave, health and retirement benefits, as well as property and space management.

The Budget Division is responsible for the formulation, execution, and tracking of the office budget, including that of the field offices. The budget is comprised of funding sources that include Endangered Species, Habitat Conservation and Restoration, Environmental Contaminants, and reimbursable and emergency response such as spills and fire.

Budget personnel provide guidance on issues of procurement, property and contract terms and conditions. They manage a large number of cooperative agreements and grants which cover a variety of programs, including Forest Conservation, Jobs in the Woods, Partners for Fish and Wildlife, Greenspaces, Information and Education, Aquatic/Fisheries Resources, Endangered Species, and Environmental Contaminants. The field office contracts with and provides funds to other federal, state, tribal and private agencies for on-the-ground projects, research, and educational programs.
