Architectural and Engineering (A&E) Roster

A&E Citywide Roster

The City of Tacoma maintains a roster of Architectural & Engineering (A&E) firms (as defined by RCW 39.80).


The Architectural and Engineering (A&E) roster is used to select firms* and consultants based on qualifications for projects or jobs on an as-needed basis. At the City's option, the City may also issue Requests for Qualifications for large/complex projects or jobs that require specialized services. Refer to the Contracting Opportunities/Services Solicitations webpage. Inclusion on the City of Tacoma A&E Roster is not a guarantee or promise that a contract will be awarded.  


This roster is for Architectural and Engineering projects that do not require use of Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) LAG.


The City of Tacoma Public Works Engineering Division will no longer be advertising to establish a Local Agency Guidelines (LAG)-compliant Architectural & Engineering Roster.  For projects utilizing Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) funds, A&E Services will be sourced through Requests for Qualifications on the Contracting Opportunities/Services Solicitations webpage.
