The Oregon Corrections Enterprises (OCE), a self-supporting and semi-independent agency of the State of Oregon reporting to the Director of the Department of Corrections (DOC), signed an agreement with the Center for Public Service to conduct a strategic assessment in early 2012.
The CPS assessment team, in collaboration with an OCE/DOC Steering Committee, carried out this strategic assessment in three phases over a ten-month time period. The phases included:
I. Organizing and Planning for the Study (May 4, 2012)
II. Assessing the OCE/DOC Work and Related Programs (December 21, 2012)
III. Co-producing Strategy Recommendations (February 7, 2013)
