Links to Agency Electronic Signature or Record Policies

July 2020 Update

  1. Effective June 11,2020, SB 6028 chapter 57 replaces RCW 19.360.010-060 (2015) and adopts the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (UETA). UETA has been adopted by 47 other states.
  2. Under SB 6028, sec.17 & 18, agencies may still adopt policies or rules on their use or acceptance of electronic signatures but they are no longer required to publicly publish policies or send them to the OCIO.
  3. The Washington State Attorney General's office is currently reviewing the legislation. This analysis will guide any future OCIO policies, standards, or guidelines around e-signatures if necessary.

RCW 19.360.020 requires that each agency electing to accept or require electronic signatures or records adopt and publish a policy that describes the methods and processes of electronic signature and record submission consistent with published guidelines. It additionally requires that the OCIO maintain a website linking to the agency policies.

This page contains the links to the published agency policies or rules as reported by the agencies.
