Services, Small Works & Supplier Rosters Application Process

Application Process


Lakehaven Water and Sewer District uses a roster application process to obtain quotes and bids for the purchase of materials, supplies, equipment, services, and small public works projects. To be eligible for inclusion on the Lakehaven Water and Sewer District (LUD) Services, Small Works and Supplier Roster, you must complete and submit an application. Applications are good for 5 years or until any information on page 3 of the application changes, whichever occurs first. Firms with applications that have not been updated and repeated non-response to roster solicitations will be removed from the Roster.

Small Works


Lakehaven Water and Sewer District awards some smaller public works projects using the Small Works Roster process. Public works projects estimated to cost as much as $300,000 (including sales tax) may be awarded using the Small Works Roster process. These projects are not advertised in the newspaper. Instead, notification is sent to contractors that have submitted an application indicating trade specialties and that maintain a current contractor’s license registered with the State of Washington.

Bid bonds are not required and the bidding period is short; however, there are some public works laws that apply to these projects. A performance and payment bond, required for any project estimated to cost more than $35,000, and an insurance certificate must be filed before any work can begin. All public works projects shall comply with the prevailing wage laws. For details and current rates, please visit the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries website.

Supplier


Many purchases made for LUD are not connected to a public works project. Items in this category include supplies, materials, and equipment that are for general purposes or will not be used to accomplish a specific public works project.

Services


Services are activities requiring labor, equipment, supplies, and materials for which LUD contracts on a periodic routine basis. Examples may include:
  • Biosolids Hauling
  • Engineering Consultant
  • Safety Training
  • Security System Installation
Contracts for architectural and engineering services require an advertising and negotiation process. Contracts estimated to be above the District’s ceiling will be competitively bid to ensure an open and fair process and best value for the ratepayer.
