Since the decline of federal timber harvests in the Pacific Northwest, forest community organizations and the USDA Forest Service have been trying to use federal service and construction contracting to foster economic development in rural communities. This study analyzes the Forest Service silviculture and restoration contracts let during FY 1998 and 1999 in Oregon and Washington to determine who wins this contract work. The study measures the distance between national forests and contractor offices and finds that contract value, work characteristics, and geographic variables partially explain variation in distance.
