Contracting Opportunities

The Council frequently has contracting opportunities for businesses. The Council's publicly advertised solicitations for contracts are listed below. For details about specific contacts, select the contract number to see the details in PDF format. For best results use the latest version of Acrobat Reader.

The Council tries to ensure that information about contracts is current and accurate. However, the only information to be relied upon for a contract solicitation is the information that is distributed to persons listed with the Council as document holders for that solicitation. To be listed, contact the person identified in the contract solicitation document. The document holders list is public information and will be distributed to whoever requests it.  To request information regarding contract awards, see the Council's Data Access Procedures (36 pages, pdf).

NOTE:  See important changes affecting Contracts and Project requirements (pdf) as a result of the 2014 Legislative Session.
