CADE is an alliance of government and public agencies within Lane County dedicated to removing barriers in contracting. The alliance was developed as a component of the Equity in Contracting Program, with the intent to: 


  • - organize and develop goals around equity and accessibility in contracting
  • - garner support for increasing the COBID-certified business directory
  • - open up communication and collaboration between agencies

CADE meets every two months to share information and hear from local speakers, and plans events throughout the year. Visit the CADE website for more information about regional partners, upcoming events relevant to the business community, and resources about how to do business with local government.
