The City of Auburn utilizes the Municipal Research and Services Center (MRSC) Consultant Roster. The Consultant Roster may be used by the City, in lieu of formal advertising, to solicit proposals for specific professional services.
As lead agency, MRSC provides a consulting services roster statewide. MRSC provides these rosters in a way that is efficient and cost-effective for agencies and consultants, using electronic formats and procedures. There are hundreds of cities, counties, school districts, and distinct special-purpose districts in the state that your consulting firm can potentially reach with one signup.
The MRSC Roster is updated on an annual basis. MRSC currently advertises in the following publications: the Tacoma News Tribune, the Seattle Times, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the Daily Journal of Commerce, and the Everett Herald.
The MRSC Consultant Roster provides a secure, password-protected online registration that will enable consultants to register quickly and inexpensively and to revise and update their information quickly. For one annual fee, a consultant can register to be on the consulting services roster.
MRSC Roster will distinguish between professional architectural and engineering services as defined in RCW 39.80.020 and other consulting services.
