HandshakeShared Neutrals/ADR


Shared Neutrals Training, July 2013

Who We Are

The Shared Neutrals Program is a cooperative arrangement between diverse federal and state agencies and local governments in the Pacific Northwest region. Each member makes a reciprocal agreement to submit requests for alternative dispute resolution services and to share resources cooperatively.

The Shared Neutrals Program is designed to serve three objectives:

  • Provide agencies with low cost and flexible access to sophisticated dispute resolution services.
  • Provide disputing individuals with accessible, timely, and confidential neutral services.
  • Support a diverse cadre of trained and experienced neutrals (mediators) who mentor less experienced neutrals from other agencies on a collateral duty basis.

Committee Goal
Provide quality dispute resolution services for government organizations in Oregon & SW Washington.
