Important Notice: The Personal Services Contracts Database (PSCD) has been modified to meet sole source and emergency contract filing requirements under RCW 39.26.
Sole source and emergency contracts are filed with the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) exclusively through the Sole Source Contracts Database (SSCD). SSCD was developed to automate many of the tasks associated with filing sole source and emergency contracts.
The database is available only to state agencies and institutions of higher education. You may access the SSCD by selecting the proper link (depending on whether you are located inside or outside the statewide intranet) located above.
RCW 39.26 requires DES approval of sole source contracts prior to start of work and review of emergency contracts. Review and approval is conducted by DES and is based on contract filings submitted by state agencies for certain categories contracts and amendments.
Sole source and emergency contract filing requirements are listed in the Applicable Policies listed above.
To aid in the filing process, please use the filing justification samples.
