Small Works Roster
Help Build Our Community
Port of Benton compiles a Small Works Roster of qualified contractors to submit proposals for public works contracts of $300,000 or less per the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) 53.08.120. We encourage veteran-, minority- and women-owned businesses to apply.
Contractors are required to apply to our Small Works Roster every other year and must be licensed and registered to perform work in Washington state. If selected for a contract, a city license where the work will be performed is also required. Applications may be submitted at any time throughout the year.
The Port does not maintain vendor lists for materials, supplies and equipment. For those items, we may make purchases through cooperative purchasing contracts, the open market or advertised solicitations.

Small Works Roster Application
Beginning July 1, 2019, all contractors must complete training on the requirements related to public works and prevailing wage before bidding and/or performing work on public works projects. During its 2019 session, the Washington legislature added this training requirement to the responsible bidder criteria in RCW 39.04.350.
Your company is exempt from this training requirement if you have been in business with an active Unified Business Identifier (UBI) number for three or more years AND have performed work on three or more public works projects.
Note: You may continue working on a public works project that started before July 1, 2019, and continues on or after July 1, 2019, without meeting this training requirement.

Contractors working for Port of Benton must comply with Washington state’s Revised Code of Washington (RCW) 39.12 law regarding prevailing wages and certified-payroll reports. View the current prevailing wages on Washington’s Department of Labor and Industries website.
