Doing Business with WAPA

Western Area Power Administration’s procurement professionals are committed to obtaining the best value supplies, services, equipment and construction services. In a cost-effective, timely manner, we seek competition to the fullest extent possible and are dedicated to the highest standards of ethical conduct throughout the acquisition process.

All WAPA acquisitions comply with the Federal Acquisition Regulations and the Department of Energy Acquisition Regulations.


WAPA supports the U.S. Department of Energy’s socioeconomic objectives by striving to award a fair portion of our total contracts to qualified small businesses, businesses owned by socially or economically disadvantaged individuals and woman- and veteran-owned small firms.
