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.

On-Site Suppliers, Vendors and Other Contractors – Vaccination and Booster Requirement

The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) is requiring all suppliers, vendors and other contractors working on-site at any AGO facility to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and receive the recommended COVID-19 vaccine booster dose and any future doses if so recommended by the Washington State Department of Health (unless otherwise exempted), or if not yet eligible, within five (5) business days of becoming eligible.  For more information, please see AGO Vaccination Policy.

The AGO has elected to require its contractors to assume responsibility for verification of COVID-19 vaccination and booster as well as handling disability and religious accommodation requests, although the AGO reserves the right to verify compliance.  Contractors are also required to ensure their representatives, including any employees and subcontractors, comply with the COVID-19 vaccination and booster requirements.

To confirm compliance, all suppliers, vendors and other contractors working on-site at an AGO facility must complete and return a COVID-19 Contractor Vaccination and Booster Requirement Declaration.

Please direct any questions to: ContractNotice@atg.wa.gov

Per Policy DES-140-00 and RCW 39.26.140, as of January 1, 2013, all state agencies entering into sole source contracts are required to post the contracts to a publicly accessible website.
