Doing business with the alliance
Small and emerging businesses
The Northwest Seaport Alliance recognizes the need to foster small business participation in the public bidding process.
Economic development in the Puget Sound is essential to the growth and vitality in the region. To that end, the NWSA encourages small and emerging businesses to participate in the bidding process for goods, services and construction projects issued by, or on behalf of, the NWSA.
