RFP Information

In order for the Washington Learning Source (WLS) to be of service to districts by enabling them to piggyback off our RFPs, the WLS will submit competitive RFPs for products that would not be considered sole source providers. The WLS has entered or will in the future enter into inter-local purchasing agreements with school districts pursuant to Chapter 39.34 RCW. These purchasing agreements allow other educational organizations to make purchases at the WLS’s accepted contract price.

The WLS will receive sealed responses in writing for products. Responses will be opened and name of responses will be read aloud to all who attend the RFP opening, which will take place according to the announced scheduled specified on the bid documents.

Responses received after the time fixed for opening will not be considered.

Responders may download RFP specifications, forms and the full text of the Request for Proposals at the WEBS site at http://www.ga.wa.gov/webs/ (search on Puget Sound ESD)
