Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is proposing to amend WAC 468-15-020.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 39.04.155.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: RCW 39.04.155 authorizes a state agency to establish a small works roster and require eligible contractors desiring to be placed on a roster to keep current records of any applicable licenses, certifications, registrations, bonding, insurance, or other appropriate matters on file with the state agency. This rule making establishes a qualification process for small works roster contracts that replaces the process described in chapter 468-16 WAC that is used on contracts over $300,000.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The department will develop rules that are consistent with the Code of Federal Regulations.
Process for Developing New Rule: The Washington state department of transportation welcomes you to participate in the rule-making process. If you are interested, please contact the staff person identified below. When we file a proposal with the office of the code reviser you will be sent this proposal and given an opportunity to comment.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Jenna Fettig, Contract Advertisement and Award Manager, Washington State Department of Transportation, P.O.
