Let ITC know if we can help add a product you need to an existing contract. The vendor for the proposed product must be already on the contract; DES will need to verify the scope of the contract allows the vendor to add a product. E-mail your request directly to the contract specialist managing the contract or e-mail the ITC team at DESCPRMITContracts@des.wa.gov.
