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
Credibility. Our effectiveness demands independence, rigor, and transparent reasoning.
Usefulness. Our work is timely, accessible, and relevant, focusing on important issues and effective solutions.
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.
Stand with the poor. We search for solutions that benefit all Oregonians, but always with a special focus on the interests of the low-income.
Economic justice. We believe in the equitable distribution of the economy's benefits.
Good government works. We believe that government plays a necessary and positive role, and we are vigilant and critical in pursuit of improved effectiveness and efficiency.
