If you are a state agency or higher education institution and have renewed or entered into a goods and services contract in the previous fiscal year, you must submit an annual report to us by October 31.
Common contracts to leave out:
After contracts and/or amendments are reported, DES populates and maintains a publicly available list of these items on data.wa.gov. The list contains agency and contractor names, contract dates and amounts, and purpose and procurement information for each contract. Questions about contract data are directed to the agency who submitted the data.
If you need a reporting exemption you must submit a exemption request. The request must be in writing, addressed to the DES director, and signed by the agency head. The request must include a detailed explanation of the proposed exemption, why the contract or contract category needs to be exempt, and how granting the request aligns with the intent of the law.
