Statewide master contracts for goods and services are designed to make it easier for state agencies, local and tribal governments, public school districts and colleges, and nonprofit organizations throughout Washington to focus on their missions. The statewide contracts have met state requirements for competitive bidding and other procurement laws, reducing risk and streamlining the purchasing process for agencies.
Master contracts leverage the state's collective buying power and are established for most frequently purchased products, making for the best use of resources for all types of Washington governments.
While state agencies are required to purchase from master contracts – unless the contract does not justifiably meet their needs – about 70 percent of customers using our statewide master contracts for goods and services do so by choice.
