Opportunity Comments
The purpose of this solicitation is to select a qualified firm to assess the Trust Property Programs.

The Agency would like to evaluate the current program to determine if there are any legal risks, operational problems, or areas that need improvement with respect to the following processes 1) the State accepting, processing, and protecting unclaimed property and escheated estates, 2) the State returning unclaimed property and estates to rightful property owners, 3) the State accurately recording and maintaining data integrity of property and estates it has in its possession. The Agency would also like a risk assessment of the program's handling of decisions based on legal considerations.
Opportunity Summary
The Trust Property Program (the "Program") has been administered by DSL since 1957. It consists of unclaimed property and escheated estates.

The Program holds custody of abandoned bank accounts, lost securities, uncashed checks, abandoned property, and military medals and insignia. Holders of these assets, such as businesses and financial institutions, must try to identify and contact property owners. If they are unable to connect property with rightful owners, the property holder must remit unclaimed property to DSL. Property Holders generally remit and report on unclaimed property to DSL during October of each year. Tangible personal property is kept by DSL for at least one year before it is auctioned.

The estate program administers estates for people who have died without a will and without known heirs. The program inventories, liquidates, and protects estate assets, searches for heirs and processes estates as the personal representative. If no known heirs are found after 10 years, the liquidated estate assets permanently escheat to the state and become part of the Oregon Common School Fund (CSF).

All intangible unclaimed property and liquidated estate assets are held in the CSF. Unclaimed property in the CSF is held in perpetuity for claim by owners and their heirs.
The unclaimed property program includes 10 full time equivalent employees (FTE) and in FY2018 received and recorded $70 million in unclaimed financial assets and processed more than 14,000 claims valued at a total of $34 million. The program also conducts audits on external entities for compliance with the Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property. In FY2017, the program conducted 75 audits.
The Escheated Estates program includes 3 FTE. In FY 2017, the estates program handled 908 cases, averaging 17 per week. As of 30 June 2017, $6.5 million was pending permanent escheat to the CSF.

Both unclaimed property claims and estate inquiries increased significantly in 2018. DSL documented that processing times for basic claims are pushing the statutory limit of 120 days.

Senate Bill 454 passed the 2019 Legislative Session and formally moved the duties and statutory responsibilities of Uniform Disposition of Unclaimed Property Act, unclaimed estates, and escheating funds-- including associated employees, responsibilities, systems, legal obligations, property, and records-- from the Oregon DSL to the Oregon State Treasury. Under the bill, the transition must be completed by July 1, 2021.
