Procurement Updates and Pipeline

The goals of this communication are to inform the business community about opportunities with GLWA as well as other key updates and topics of interest.


In April 2018, GLWA launched a Small Business Recruitment Program to increase the number of respondents to GLWA procurements. In addition, our goal is for the program to:

  • Expand the number of firms with water and wastewater expertise in the region
  • Facilitate collaboration among larger firms with smaller firms
  • Issue clearer bid/proposal documents (in particular, noting when work does not need to be completed by a general contractor)
  • Provide a venue for two-way communication of challenges and opportunities to ensure that GLWA is a customer/client of choice in the vendor community

We consider the following organizations partners to achieving mutual goals:
