Contracting with the Port

e-Procurement Platform and Roster

The Port of Olympia utilizes the Bonfire e-procurement platform to host all competitive solicitations.  Vendors and consultants must register with Bonfire to submit qualifications, proposals or bids on Port solicitations.

In addition to the Bonfire e-procurement platform, the Port also utilizes the MRSC shared Rosters list to solicit for small public works and consulting opportunities. MRSC Rosters is an online shared roster for local Washington State governments to efficiently maintain contractor and consultant information. To be considered for providing services to the Port of Olympia, join the Roster or call 206-625-1300. Select Port of Olympia in your account.


Equitably Distribute

The Port rotates solicitations among the contractors in a manner that will equitably distribute the opportunity among contractors within the trade category. Equitably distribute means that the Port may not favor certain contractors on the appropriate small works roster over other contractors on the appropriate small works roster who perform similar services.
