Record Series Descriptions

Oregon Option Records
1994-1999
Office/Function: Oregon Option
10 cubic feet
Arrangement: Child Health Cluster records chronological by meeting date. Other records generally by folder title.

Series documents the actions of the Governor’s Office and various state and federal agencies in relation to planning and implementing Oregon Option initiatives. The Oregon Option was designed as a partnership between the federal government and the state of Oregon to forge alliances and improve the delivery of services to citizens. Major aspects of the plan require the federal government to streamline programs and provide flexibility while the state government develops benchmarks to measure results. The Oregon Option partnership was designed to apply to all sorts of service delivery including those related to child health, welfare, juvenile justice, and natural resources.

A large portion of the records document the development of Oregon Option plans related to areas of delivery called “clusters.” One cubic foot of records documents meetings related to the Child Health Cluster. Many of the other records relate to human services issues such as welfare, teen pregnancy, child nutrition. Records include correspondence, publications, reports, memoranda, proposals, meeting agendas and minutes, press clippings, one videotape, one computer floppy disk, and related documents.
