Consultant Common Questions
What is MRSC Rosters? MRSC Rosters is a shared online consultant roster and small public works contractor roster for local Washington State governments/agencies (counties, cities, fire districts, school districts and other special districts) to maintain, search for and solicit bids from contractors and consultants.
How is the Shared Small Public Works Roster - MRSC Rosters, different from an individual roster? Multiple agencies share the cost of maintaining the roster and it allows consultants to market their services to multiple agencies in one application process.
Do I have to reapply for MRSC Rosters every year? No. A year from the date your company's account was verified, you will receive a renewal notice. At that time we will ask that you confirm that the information is still accurate and make payment if you choose to utilize the Enhanced Option for another year.
Where are the project jobs posted on MRSC Rosters? Just like any roster system, jobs are not posted; agencies directly contact consultants with requests for bids when they have a specific project. Consultants then respond to that agency. MRSC Rosters provides the system but does not have any participation in the bidding process.
How do agencies determine which consultants to request bids from for a project? Each agency follows their own evaluation procedure, but generally they will review all of the consultant accounts per service category and specifically read through the uploaded Statement of Qualifications you post along with references and project summaries.
What format do I use for the Statement of Qualifications? There is no standard SOQ format, however it is suggested that it be an overview similar to marketing materials you would use to introduce your company. When an agency requests a proposal, then you submit a specific SOQ for that project.
How often will agencies contact me? How many jobs will I get? It is up to each individual agency how much they use the system, however when an agency joins, they will only be using MRSC Rosters as their consultant roster so they will be using it as much as they would have been using their individual roster.
