Washington State Historical Society SOLE SOURCE POSTING

The Washington State Historical Society contemplates awarding a sole source contract for a four month period to provide glass negatives (glass and nitrate cellulose negatives) storage retro-fitting.

This project includes retrofitting the WSHS’s existing Spacesaver built-in high-density mobile shelving systems including changing the gear ratios and supplying additional Spacesaver parts to enable reuse of the existing carriages.

The contract will be issued on or about August 25, 2019.

The primary result of this project will be a vast improvement in the safety and long-term preservation of WSHS' glass negative collection. This collection is a unique and irreplaceable body of work. In the current location, the negatives could be destroyed by even a relatively small earthquake. Moving them to more secure storage is essential to preserving this vitally important piece of Washington State history. Its loss would be a severe blow to anyone studying the early 20th century history of the state.

The expert must be able to provide the archival quality storage units required to meet the American Association of Museums standards for glass negative storage to ensure the archival integrity of the glass negatives. 

Offerors contemplating the above requirements are required to submit capability statements detailing their ability to meet the state’s requirements within five (5) calendar days of this announcement.  In the absence of other qualified sources, it is the state’s intent to make a sole source award of the contract. 

To submit capability statements, contact Misty Dawn Reese @ misty.reese@wshs.wa.gov
