DES is inviting customers to comment on this list that DES is researching to see if there is justification for a new state contract. Please send comments by email to help DES determine the level of customer demand for these contracts.
To submit a suggestion for a new master contract, email DESContractsStrategy@des.wa.gov and put “Contract suggestion” in the subject line.
Let DES 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 that the scope of the contract allows the vendor to add a product. Email your request directly to the contract specialist managing the contract or email DES Contracts and Procurement at DESContractsStrategy@des.wa.gov.
