Western States Contracting Alliance

The Western States Contracting Alliance (WSCA) creates multi-State contracts in order to achieve cost-effective and efficient acquisition of quality products and services. WSCA contracts maximize cost avoidance, reduce individual state administrative costs, and encourage market competition and product availability through standard specifications and consolidated requirements. WSCA contracts are available for use by public agencies when approved by the State Purchasing Director.
The Department of General Administration develops and administers contracts for goods and services with an estimated term value of approximately $400 million, on behalf of state agencies, colleges and universities, select nonprofit organizations, and local governments.  

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.  If you are not sure, check with either your home state chief procurement official (contact information can be found here) or contact Paul Stembler.
