Small Works Roster for Public Works Projects

Ben Franklin Transit is a participating member of the shared statewide small public works and consultant roster service administered by the Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington (MRSC), a non-profit that supports Washington local governments.

The Small Works Contractor Roster is an online small public works roster, following the statute 39.04.155, which is shared by participating public agencies to search for eligible contractors and solicit bids for small works services, including construction, building, renovation, remodeling, alteration, repair or improvement of real property. This alternative to advertising for bids on each project under $300,000 saves public agencies money, as does sharing the maintenance costs of this service rather than administering individual rosters.

Ben Franklin Transit encourages contractors to join the free-of-charge MRSC Small Works Contractor Roster by registering online at and select Ben Franklin Transit in your application. Once registered, your company is eligible to receive bid notifications from Ben Franklin Transit and other public agencies searching for small works services. Note: not all public works projects will be solicited using the MRSC, e.g., FTA funded public work projects and some medium to larger public works projects.
