A2Z is proud to partner with Washington’s Office of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing as well as the Department of Enterprise Services as an approved vendor for ASL Interpreting services.

Services are provided by way of a Master Contract, which can be found here https://apps.des.wa.gov/DESContracts/Home/ContractSummary/02120

State and government agencies, as well as organizations who have signed a cooperative agreement with DES (https://apps.des.wa.gov/DESContracts/Home/MCUAListing), are able to utilize the Master Contract to request ASL interpreters without needing to complete additional contract paperwork.

Requesting an interpreter is simple:

  1. Fill out the interpreter request form on ODHH’s website https://fortress.wa.gov/dshs/odhhapps/Interpreters/Request.aspx

*Note, if this is your first time requesting an interpreter on the website you will need to set up a user account https://fortress.wa.gov/dshs/odhhapps/Interpreters/Account/NewServiceRequestAccount.aspx
