Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amending chapter 326-30 WAC, Goals and goal setting.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 39.19.030.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: Governor Inslee formed the business diversity subcabinet (subcabinet) that focused on increasing access for small, minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses to contracting opportunities in Washington state government. Part of the subcabinet's action plan focuses on the framework for how this spend is measured. Some of the outcomes of this action plan could affect rules in chapter 326-30 WAC that address how agency's contracting spend with women and minority-owned business is calculated and measured.
Process for Developing New Rule: The office of minority and women's business enterprises (OMWBE) welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, OMWBE will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Mark Kifowit, Public Records Manager, Rules Coordinator, P.O. Box 41160, Olympia, WA 98504, phone (360) 664-9750, fax (360) 407-0955, e-mail
