Western States Contracting Alliance
  Who is on 1st - Who's contract is it anyway?
WSCA uses a "Lead State" model in issuing cooperative solicitations. One of the WSCA states leads the procurement, issues the solicitation and awards the contracts based on that states statutory requirements and processes. The Lead State owns and manages the contract(s). You can find the name of the Lead State contact by selecting a contract from the list on the right. Other WSCA states have chosen to participate and have followed each state's individual statutory processes to provide public notice and permit participation. If you are not sure or have other questions, contact Paul Stembler (contact information below).

I am a contractor. How do I register with WSCA?
WSCA does not offer a vendor registration program. Each WSCA state has its own program. See Opportunities (on this website) and register with the lead state indicated there or the state currently administering the contract(s) of interest (from the list on the right).

Can contractors be added to existing WSCA contracts?
All WSCA contracts are established on a competitive basis. Contractors may NOT be added after the deadline specified in the solicitation document for the receipt of responses. If you have questions contact Paul Stembler (contact information below).

Who can use WSCA contracts?
All governmental entities within WSCA states are eligible to use WSCA contracts, if the governmental entity has the legal authority to use their home states' contracts. Non-WSCA states are generally able to use WSCA contracts if they have followed their own statutory process. If you are not sure about the legal status of an entity, check with Paul Stembler (contact information below).
