Many DSHS contracts that have a start date of July 1, 2006, and all DSHS contracts that have a start date of August 1, 2006 and thereafter, will include the revised DSHS GPs. These GPs have multiple formats.
Contractors should consult with the DSHS contract management unit assigned to the contract, or contact the DSHS Client Services Contracting Unit (CSCU), on questions or clarifications of GPs relevant to their contracts.
There are two main "core" GP documents:
- Publication no. EF29-12425 (201 KB, PDF) - Core GPs for subrecipient-designated contractors, revised 7/20/06. The 2007 General Provisions (Subrecipient) Index (14 KB, PDF), revised 7/20/06, is provided separately.
