Ecology's stakeholder services protect Washington's ecosystem services.




Ecology provides services that benefit all residents of Washington State. The primary clients are businesses, local government (cities, counties), tribes, utility districts, port districts, permit holders, waste generators, nonprofits, schools, educators, researchers and citizens.

Ecology outsourced some support services and consulting work under two categories in calendar (CY) year 2011: personal and purchased services contracts. These represent approximately 15 percent (five percent and ten percent respectively) of the total agency expenditures excluding grants.
