Acquisitions: Bids and contracts

We post all bid notifications, addenda, and updates on Washington’s Electronic Business Solution (WEBS). WEBS is a central online site where vendors may register to receive bid notifications from all participating government agencies.

  • To search and view current contracts, see Current contracts (Department of Enterprise Services).
  • To register as a vendor and find bid opportunities, see Doing business with the state (Department of Enterprise Services).
    • Interested vendors must register in WEBS before they can receive notification of Department of Licensing opportunities, view updates, or submit responses.
  • To see the terms and conditions all vendors must adhere to when accepting an order from us, see our Standard Terms and Conditions.

Minority and women-owned businesses

Minority and women-owned businesses are encouraged to compete for business with the state of Washington. The Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise (OMWBE) is responsible for developing programs to improve the contributions of minority and women-owned businesses. For more information about OMWBE, including how to become a certified business, see the OMWBE website at omwbe.wa.gov.

Veteran-owned businesses

State law encourages agencies to award 3% of all procurement contracts that are exempt from competitive bidding requirements to certified veteran-owned businesses. For more information about becoming a certified veteran-owned business, visit the Veteran Business Registry at the Department of Veteran Affairs website.
