Office of Attorney General seeks litigation support services

Shortly after Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s significant court win against the Trump administration, the Office of the Attorney General has released a request for proposal for litigation support services.

President Trump announced on Thursday that he plans to issue a new executive order replacing his struck down travel ban. It is possible that Attorney General Ferguson will challenge that order as well. The AGO might be recruiting local vendors to assist with local Washington cases so they can focus on future federal litigations

The AGO aims to create a vendor pool of prequalified contractors across the state. Vendors may be chosen from the pool for specific assignments as they arise. The contract will last two years with a budget of $3 million. The AGO does not guarantee a minimum purchase from any contractor and may extend the contract another year.

The AGO is seeking vendors in all 39 counties.

Chosen vendors will be responsible for litigation support services, including both discovery and trial/courtroom presentation services. Vendors must be able to provide services in at least one of the following categories

  • Data Collection Services
  • Forensic Services
  • Data Processing
  • Analytics
  • Production and Media
  • Hosting and Storage
  • Document Review and Staffing Services
  • Specialty Services: Audio
  • Consulting, Testimonial, and Professional Services
  • Trial and Courtroom Presentation Services

Proposals are due on March 17 at 5pm. Interested bidders may contact Marci Phillips at 360-534-4871 or marcip@atg.wa.gov.
