The Oregon Center for Public Policy (OCPP) does in-depth research and analysis on budget, tax, and economic issues. Our goal is to improve decision making and generate more opportunities for all Oregonians.
Use research and analysis to advance policies and practices that improve the economic and social opportunities of all Oregonians.
OCPP's Core Principles
Economic justice. Social justice is found in a progressive tax system and the equitable distribution of the economy's benefits.
Stand with the poor. Our solutions must benefit all Oregonians, but always with a special focus on the interests of low income Oregonians.
Good government works. Government can play a necessary and positive role, and we are vigilant and critical in pursuit of improved effectiveness and efficiency of our public structures.
How OCPP Works
Credibility. Our effectiveness demands independence, rigor, and transparent reasoning.
Usefulness. Our work is timely, accessible, and relevant.
Cooperation. We work in concert with others to share information, build consensus, and achieve results.
Involvement. In all decisions we are considerate of those who are affected by our work.
