Join the Small Works Roster

The Small Works Roster is a listing of state of Washington licensed contractors who have applied for and been placed on the roster. The Small Works Roster is used for projects under $350,000.

Organizations use the roster to generate a list of contractors based on the contractor type, type of work and project location. Contractors on the list receive instructions, usually by e-mail, on how to obtain project documents.

Although we advertise for the Small Works Roster annually, applications are accepted any time.
