Update on Procurement Reform for State of Washington Agencies

Under legislation approved in 2012, the Washington State Department of Enterprise Services (DES) was charged with implementing a Procurement Reform initiative for state agencies and institutions of higher education.

Effective January 1, 2013, all procurement and contracting for these agencies will be governed by chapter 39.26 RCW, replacing chapter 43.19 RCW.  DES is rolling out new policies and best practices to assist in the implementation.
