Vendor Education – Email Scam and Phishing Prevention

Email scams and online phishing attempts continue to increase in frequency. We are aware of recent attempts to mislead vendors who we conduct business with. We interpret these as attempts to initiate a scam on our vendors by using a misleading domain name to send emails that appear to come from the Office of the Attorney General.

Statewide Vendor Payment Registration

Vendors, grantees and other partners receiving payment from the Office of the Attorney General must be registered in the Statewide Vendor Payment System. The Washington State Office of Financial Management maintains the Statewide Vendor Payment System.  Registration materials can be found on line at Statewide Vendor/Payee Services | Office of Financial Management or by contacting the Statewide Payee Desk at (360) 407-8180.  Payees are encouraged to use direct deposit for receiving payments.  Please keep in mind that payment forms need to be submitted directly to the Office of Financial Management, and not to the Office of the Attorney General.


Register in WEBS

Washington’s Electronic Business Solution (WEBS) is the bid notification system Washington State Agencies are required to use to post solicitations. Political subdivisions and higher educations are not required to use WEBS to post solicitation opportunities; however, many voluntarily use the system.

Vendors are encouraged to register in WEBS to see solicitation opportunities.  Please review the Vendor Manual for instructions on how to register and navigate WEBS.  There is no fee associated with registering and once registered WEBS will send email notices to vendors of future bidding opportunities for any of the commodity codes the vendor selected.

The Attorney General’s Office posts its solicitations on WEBS.  Only vendors registered in WEBS can submit a bid.

Please find the full solicitation, solicitation documents and bid instructions available in WEBS: https://pr-webs-vendor.des.wa.gov/.

Vendors not registered in WEBS will not receive updates or amendments to the solicitation, which could disadvantage your bid.


AGO Procurement Bids and Bid Awards

Transparency in public procurement is necessary to ensure the highest ethical standards and accountability, ensure open and fair competition, and promote public review of contract and procurement documents. A transparent procurement process promotes public confidence and encourages participation of the business community to meet the state’s purchasing needs.  Confidential material may be redacted. (See Supplier Diversity Policy – DES-090-06.)

Project Title Service Type Service Description Procurement Apparent Successful Bidder *

Bid Documents

(Note: Unless exempt from disclosure, the AGO will publicly post awarded bid(s) and bid award documents for all competitive procurements posted on or after 4/1/23.)

* The AGO will determine the Apparent Successful Bidder (“ASB”). The ASB will be the responsive and responsible Bidder(s) that best meet(s) the procurement requirements and present the best total value, including pricing and budget, and other factors as set forth in this RFP, including any applicable state procurement priority or preference. Designation as an ASB does not imply that the AGO will issue an award for a Contract. Rather, this designation allows the AGO to perform further analysis and ask for additional documentation. The Bidder must not construe ASB designation as an award, impending award, attempt to negotiate, etc. If a Bidder acts or fails to act as a result of such notification or designation, it does so at its own risk and expense.
