Our Values

Government Transparency

Each year, a report of Washington state agency contracts is posted on the Data.WA.gov website by the Department of Enterprise Services; in the search bar on that website use keywords "fiscal reports" and the respective year to find them. Data.WA.gov includes data tools, filters, and downloadable files for users to explore. In the contracts data, the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) agency number is 303.

For your convenience, DOH contract reports for prior fiscal years are provided here:

Transformational Plan

The cornerstone values of equity, innovation, and engagement are key drivers in shaping and transforming DOH  services and strengthening our core work. Read the DOH Transformational Plan: A Vision for Health in Washington State (2022-24) to learn about our strategic priorities and how agency values are infused into transforming our services and aligning equity efforts in all that we do, reenergizing the commitment to health for all.

Supplier Diversity and Equity in Contracting

Small businesses are the backbone of the state economy. About 99% of Washington’s businesses are small. Washington's small businesses also employ 1.3 million workers, or approximately 51% of Washington’s total workforce. Executive Order 22-01 directs state agencies to take certain steps to provide small businesses with equitable access to contract and procurement dollars. 

The DOH Contracts and Procurement Office is committed to fair, transparent, and open competition, ensuring that taxpayer dollars are spent equitably in the private sector through accessible opportunities for small and diverse businesses. To learn more about statewide supplier diversity work, please visit the websites of the Department of Enterprise Services and the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises.
