The Statewide Procurement Division’s (SPD) Texas Multiple Award Schedule (TXMAS) Program establishes TXMAS contracts to supplement SPD Term Contracts. The TXMAS Program adapts existing, competitively awarded, governmental contracts to service the procurement needs of state agencies and Texas SmartBuy members.
TXMAS contracts take advantage of the most favored customer (MFC) pricing and under certain circumstances; an agency or local governmental entity may negotiate a lower price for the goods or services offered on a TXMAS contract. Customers must make a "best value" determination by following the TXMAS purchasing procedures as outlined in the State of Texas Procurement and Contract Management Guide.
To qualify for a TXMAS contract, the applicant must submit a completed TXMAS Offer Packet Application. Interested applicants must meet the requirements found within the TXMAS Offer Packet Application.
SPD reserves the right to accept or deny any submitted base contract deemed to be unacceptable at the time of review. The following list is not exhaustive.
The Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) will only accept TXMAS Offer Packet Applications during the first month of each quarter in accordance with the following schedule:
Interested applicants should download, complete and submit the TXMAS Offer Packet Application, TXMAS Catalog and all required documentation as outlined in the application. Submission of a TXMAS Offer Packet Application does not guarantee award of a TXMAS contract.
Evaluation of TXMAS Offer Packet Applications may require additional information. If the requested information is not received within the allotted time frame, the TXMAS Offer Packet Application may be rejected. A new TXMAS Offer Packet may be submitted after a 180-day waiting period.
Awarding a TXMAS contract is at the sole discretion of SPD.
SUBMIT COMPLETED TXMAS OFFER PACKET APPLICATION TO: firstname.lastname@example.org.
An authorized TXMAS dealer delivers the product/service to the customer. A dealer receives the purchase order, writes an invoice and receives payment by the purchasing entity. Applicants requiring dealers on a potential TXMAS contract must indicate so on the TXMAS Offer Packet Application. Dealer documents will be sent to the applicant after award.
Current TXMAS contractors requesting new dealers may request dealer documents from email@example.com.
Disaster recovery purchases: The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided rules and guidance relating to federal disaster assistance. Customers must determine whether their purchases meet the requirements imposed based on their source of funding. The Comptroller's office may provide information about the base contract, TXMAS Terms and Conditions, and contracting process to inform that determination. However, the Comptroller's office cannot advise whether a particular purchase will be allowable under the terms of a particular grant or other agreement. The determination that a cost is not allowable will be made by FEMA or other appropriate federal entity. For additional guidance, please review the FEMA Cooperative Purchasing Agreement White Paper (PDF).
