I have an existing site that has implemented user management, and I am standing up a wordpress site for forums. I need Single Sign On (SSO) between the two sites. Researching WordPress it appears that OAUTH is my best bet for a SSO implementation. However,
I can find plenty of examples of implementing OAUTH in asp.net/mvc to allow sign in with a third party, but I've not found any examples of how to be the third party.
I need my site to manage the users, and pass the required OAUTH data to WordPress, any one able/willing to point me in the right direction?

Have you checked out the huge library of plugins available to WordPress? You might find one that does this using OAUTH for authentication. I have Single Sign-on enabled with social networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc. Making the jump to using the asp.net
site as the source of authority should not be too hard to do. Let me know if you need help working that out.

Hi here is a shortcut to that specific section of WordPress plugins involving SSO:

And here is a section that is more geared toward SSO and OAUTH in WordPress:

Yes I have looked at WordPress SSO, and it all makes complete sense, the plugins allow you to log into wordpress with OAUTH, say with Facebook/google/etc...
Where I'm stuck is I need to be the Facebook/Google side of things for my site. I already have a user base, and want that user base to be signed onto my wordpress hosted forums once they have singed on my site. I need to pass the OAUTH credentials from my
personal site over to word press. I've been looking for some examples of how to do this, but everything I see is for accepting OAUTH, not initiating OAUTH.

Chances are you will probably have to post a thread in wordpress.org user forums for support on that wordpress plugin. We don't support PHP here unfortunately.
