NOTES:
i. Best Buy: The following provision applies to Mandatory use contracts only. This contract is subject to RCW 43.
    19.190(2) & RCW 43.19.1905(7): which authorize state agencies to purchase materials, supplies, services, and
    equipment of equal quantity and quality to those on state contract from non-contract suppliers. Provided that an agency
    subsequently notifies the Office of State Procurement (OSP) contract administrator that the pricing is less costly for such
    goods or services than the price from the state contractor. If the non-contract supplier's pricing is less, the state contractor
    shall be given the opportunity by the state agency to at least meet the non-contractor's price. If the state contractor cannot
    meet the price, then the state agency may purchase the item(s) from the non-contract supplier, document the transactions
    on the appropriate form developed by OSP and forwarded to the SPO administering the state contract. (Reference
    General Authorities document). If a lower price can be identified on a repeated basis, the state reserves the right to
    renegotiate the pricing structure of this agreement. In the event such negotiations fail, the state reserves the right to delete
    such item(s) from the contract.

ii. State Agencies: Submit Order directly to Contractor for processing. Political Subdivisions: Submit orders directly to
    Contractor referencing State of Washington contract number. If you are unsure of your status in the State Purchasing
    Cooperative call (360) 902-7415 or visit: https://fortress.wa.gov/ga/inet/servlet/PCACoopListSv

iii. Authorized Purchasers: purchasers included in the State of Washington Purchasing Cooperative (WSPC) listings
     published and updated periodically by OSP may purchase from this contract. It is the contractor’s responsibility to verify
     membership of these organizations prior to processing orders received under this contract. A list of Washington members
     is available on the Internet: http://www.ga.wa.gov/servlet/PCACoopListSv contractors shall not process state contract
     orders from unauthorized users.

iv. Contract Term: This Document includes by reference all terms and conditions published in the original IFB #06606,
    including Standard Terms and Conditions, and Definitions, included in the Competitive Procurement Standards
