Access the Sole Source Contracts Database
Our Sole Source Contracts Database (SSCD) application guides users through the process of filing sole source and emergency contracts. State agencies and higher education institutions must file their sole source and emergency contracts with us.
If you already have a login issued by us and have access to the statewide intranet, visit sscd.des.wa.gov to log in to the system. A help guide is available for use once you are logged in.
If you do not have a login issued by us, please contact the Sole Source Oversight Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have outlines to help with the sole source, emergency contract, and amendment filing processes:
- Emergency contract justification sample
- Late filing justification sample
- Sole source contract justification template
- Sole source amendment justification template
This policy establishes criteria and qualifications, reporting requirements and timelines, and reporting exemptions related to emergency purchases. See RCW 39.26.130. These reporting requirements promote state agency transparency of emergency purchases which are exceptions from competition. See RCW 39.36.125(1).
This policy applies whenever an agency intends to purchase or lease goods and/or services under Chapter 39.26 RCW that are only available from a single source as defined in RCW 39.26.010(23) or are exempt from competition.
