The Master Contracts Usage Agreement (MCUA) is a one-time agreement necessary to meet statutory requirements allowing qualifying organizations to use Washington State master contracts. (Public Benefit Nonprofit entities should use this form.) Cooperative purchasing through state contracts provides organizations that have agreed to terms and conditions the opportunity to save millions of dollars annually by pooling resources to leverage the market through volume discounts. Authorized organizations are provided access to over 1,500 vendors supplying goods and services through master contracts to meet all the business needs of their organization at no cost.
There is no cost for the Master Contracts Usage Agreement.
