These are the contracts ITC is working to make a reality, right now.
1. Audio-visual solutions: Based on multiple customer requests, DES is actively working on a new master contract for commercial-grade audio-visual communication systems and services, including design, installation and equipment for sound, video, lighting, display and projection systems. DES is building a stakeholder team to research the marketplace and establish specifications for the new master contract. Contract will Include: Induction loop system for the hearing-impaired: An induction or inductive loop is an electromagnetic communication or detection system used for transmission and reception of communication signals, or for detection of metal objects in metal detectors or vehicle-presence indicators. One application for this product is to address ADA compliance by transmitting the spoken word directly and clearly to a listener’s hearing aid equipped with a T-coil. This contract is approaching the final review stage before posting to WEBS.
2. RFID (radio-frequency identification): Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information.

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.
