(2) The department shall make available to the applicant copies of the contract and all applicable regulations, policies, and guidelines current at the time of application.
(3) The department will consider an application only if the applicant complies with WAC 246-790-075 and 246-790-077.

(7) Vendors can request an administrative appeal for certain adverse actions by the department in connection with the contract as specified in the contract and provided in WAC 246-790-125.
