Electronic Licensing System (ELS) Agent Letter

Jul. 6, 2018


Dear ODFW Licensing Agent:

A few weeks ago, you received a communication that gave further information about ODFW’s new licensing system and its benefits. To provide its agents with adequate time ahead of the new system implementation, ODFW has drafted a new agent agreement and additional related information.  This information should aide in determining actions you will want to take, if any, to prepare for the changes.

For your review, below is a link to the new agent agreement as well as recommendations for connection to the new website application, which is anticipated to become available in December of 2018.

While agreement standard language nearly always needs updating from changes in law, the following are some key changes to keep in mind:

  • Elimination of the requirement to return cancelled documents
  • Elimination of iPOS related requirements
  • Inclusion of a requirement to utilize agent supplied equipment and supplies
  • Inclusion of minimum insurance requirements

While for many, these changes will minimally affect current business, ODFW understands that this may be an opportunity for agents to review current practices and update their business model.  ODFW is asking for agents to confirm their intent to continue acting as an ODFW Agent and respond to the below no later than July 31, 2018.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call agent support at 800-293-3762 or send an email to­­­­.  We appreciate your support of ODFW and look forward to continuing our relationship.

Click here to provide your response.

If you are not the right person to receive this please pass it on to the appropriate contact.
