Public works project roster transitions to state system
Monday, January 7, 2013
Businesses and consultants seeking eligibility for small- to medium-sized — $300,000 or less — public works projects in Clark County must now register with a different roster to receive notification, according to Vancouver’s website.
The Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington has replaced the roster system previously overseen by the City of Vancouver for Clark County’s eight public agencies. Vancouver’s shared system has been discontinued and the other agencies have all made the transition to Washington’s MRSC, including Vancouver.
To be eligible and notified about public works projects with these agencies, businesses need to register with MRSC at MRSC Rosters. Applications previously submitted to Vancouver will not carry over, according to the city’s website, which states that businesses must re-apply for all projects with all agencies. The MRSC roster is streamlined to allow businesses to use one free application to apply for multiple project notifications from 319 cities and agencies across the state, according to the MRSC.
