Data Center - Contracts

Texas state agencies utilize statewide contracts established by the Comptroller's Office and the Department of Information Resources. Agencies are also authorized to establish individual contracts for services and goods not on statewide contracts. Contract bids and awards valued over $25,000 for commodities and over $100,000 for services are posted on the Electronic State Business Daily. The Legislative Budget Board oversees contract reporting and provides a searchable online database for awarded state contracts.
