Washington’s Electronic Business Solution (WEBS) provides an on-line database of vendors interested in doing business with state agencies and institutions. The WEBS database is an excellent tool for locating certified minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged firms for supplier diversity.
The WEBS site requires user registration. Registration and personalized instruction for WSU staff is available from Purchasing Services. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to make this request.
The Internet address of WEBS is http://www.ga.wa.gov/webs/. Washington State University sealed bids are posted on the WEBS site.
U.S. Small Business Administration Dynamic Small Business Search
This is generally a self-certifying database. Request a copy of the firm’s certification from the state of their location. The SBA does not make any representation as to the accuracy of any of the data included, other than certifications relating to 8(a) Business Development, HUBZone or Small Disadvantaged Business status.
