Retro-Reflective Materials DES

Washington State Department of Enterprise Services intends to post a solicitation for retro reflective glass beads, all weather reflect elements beads and drying agent. These Beads should meet AASHTO Standard Specification and are used in Traffic Paints for pavement marking. The solicitation is scheduled to post in October 2021 with an estimated value of $1.5 million.

If this is something of interest, this is the contract it is replacing. If you scroll down on the webpage this links to, you can view the current contract, pricing, and the last solicitation along with how everyone scored (bid tab). 

Washington State values small and diverse business inclusion.  Each procurement they do will have at least two equity measures.  Most include Washington small and veteran preference points and designated awards just for Washington small and veteran businesses.

If you are interested in signing up to receive the upcoming procurement information, Joe or Scott can assist you by emailing WEBS customer service team at WebsCustomerService@des.wa.gov.  

If you plan on bidding, please let DES know.  If you don’t plan on bidding and there is something DES could have done to remove barriers in the procurement or process, let DES know that too.  If this doesn’t quite align with the work you do, consider reviewing the full DES contract portfolio to see if something else fits better.
