However, the Port has determined that it is in the Port’s best interests to require the contractor to comply with certain elements of ORS Chapter 279C, including bonding as provided for under ORS 279C.380. Accordingly the Port has elected to invoke applicable provisions of ORS Chapter 279C where stated, but otherwise the provisions of ORS Chapter 279C do not apply to the work under this contract except where specifically noted herein.
