|What about my existing agreements?||
Old categories and their respective contracts will terminate as new categories and contracts are implemented. As these events occur, Enterprise Services will provide update broadcasts and remain available for status updates. Existing work orders will survive the expiration of the old contracts. Any new work, on the other hand, will require second-tier competitions or Sole Source agreements to be executed.
|Where are solicitation documents posted?||
Solicitation documents are posted to Washington State’s enterprise vendor registration and bid notification system (currently Washington’s Electronic Business Solution or WEBS).
Contractors must be registered in WEBS in order to compete in first and second tier solicitations. View WEBS Registration & Search Tips. Questions about the registration process may be directed to WEBSCustomerService@des.wa.gov or (360) 902-7400, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday.
For further detail, see WEBS Vendor FAQ.
|How do I become prequalified in a category?||
DES coordinates prequalification or 'First-Tier' solicitations by category using the following process:
|How do I obtain work?||
For each project, state agency purchasers determine which IT service category applies and they solicit proposals from the appropriate vendor pool within WEBS. Proposals will only be entertained from vendors with a master contract FOR THE SPECIFIED CATEGORY.
