POLICY


.100 POLICY STATEMENT 

The Oregon University System (OUS) is a single entity pursuant to Oregon law and is under the control of the State Board of Higher Education. OUS consists of the Chancellor's Office and the seven institutions of higher education: Eastern Oregon University, Oregon Institute of Technology, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, University of Oregon, and Western Oregon University.

For the specific purposes of 1) administering funds received (e.g., student financial aid, research and development, and other sponsored programs), and 2) designating an OUS institution as a federal contractor or subcontractor participating in the E-Verify program to confirm employment eligibility, institutional tax identification numbers (TINs) will be used.

For all other purposes, OUS employs a single TIN.
