Find out how to get bid notifications and information for minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses.
How to do business with us
We post all bid notifications, addenda, and updates on Washington's Electronic Business Solution (WEBS). You can register with WEBS to get bid notifications from all participating government agencies.
Search and view current contracts on the Department of Enterprise Services website.
To register as a vendor and find bid opportunities, see how to work with the state (des.wa.gov).
You must register with WEBS before you can get notified about Department of Licensing opportunities, view updates, or submit responses.
In certain cases, we may enter contracts without competitive bidding. These are known as sole-source contracts. Under state law (RCW 39.26.140(1)), we must:
- Make sole-source contracts available for public inspection for at least 10 working days before the intended start date
- Post instructions on how to get a copy of sole-source contracts
Sole-source contract announcements
There are no contract opportunities to review at this time.

Minority and women-owned businesses
Washington encourages minority and women-owned businesses to compete for government contracts. The Office of Minority and Women's Business Enterprise (OMWBE) offers programs and certification to help these businesses access more opportunities.
State law encourages agencies to award 3% of all procurement contracts without competitive bidding requirements to certified veteran-owned businesses. The Department of Veterans Affairs has more information about certifying a veteran-owned business.
