The Comptroller’s Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) develops statewide contracts for non-IT contracts and services to streamline purchasing for state agencies, institutions of higher education and other state government entities.
Local governments and other Co-operative Purchasing program members can take advantage of the statewide term and other managed contracts, and TxMAS contracts developed from federally procured contracts.
Commodities and services contracts developed by SPD are available through the TxSmartBuy portal or are purchased directly from contracted vendors.
