Procurement Oversight & Delegation

The Procurement Oversight & Delegation section is dedicated to the review of solicitations and delegation of purchasing authority for service contracts greater than $100,000, and coordination of the mandatory interagency Contract Advisory Team review for contracts with a value of at least $5 million.

The Contract Advisory Team (CAT) was created to assist state agencies in improving contract management practices by reviewing and making recommendations on solicitation documents for contracts that have a value of at least $5 million during the full term of the contract, including any renewals periods authorized under the contract.

Review and Delegation is required of SPD delegated purchases. If an agency exceeds the established dollar limits of $100,000 for services, it must seek delegated authority from the Comptroller's Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) to make these purchases.

Should your agency like to request a review of its boilerplate terms and conditions, they may do so annually by having the agency's procurement director submit the request and a copy of the template to spd.oversight@cpa.texas.gov.

*Please allow for a 30-day review period. If incomplete solicitation packages are submitted, this may result in a longer review time or cancellation of your solicitation review.
