- The contract is currently exceeding the recently adjusted target adoption rate of 92%.
- The target adoption rate has been revised upward to 92% due to the fact that the previous target had been surpassed for a sustained period of time.
- A significant portion of the Non-Contractor spending during Q4 FY08 is attributable to agencies which have legislative authority to purchase outside of the contract. Under RCW 43.19.190(2), DSHS is permitted to use a federal contract for hospitals, and under RCW 43.19.1932, Correctional Industries (CI) is able to purchase outside of the state contracts. The inclusion of this data helps to show a better picture of the state's purchasing activity.
- GA has had preliminary discussions with both DSHS and CI about using the enterprise food contract, and there are ongoing efforts to improve the partnerships between vendors and agencies.
