Use hundreds of established state contracts to eliminate the need to solicit new bids. Our premier online purchasing system at TxSmartBuy.com gives your organization access to incredible benefits, such as hundreds of goods and services available for purchase on state contract negotiated pricing - and without spend thresholds to receive savings. Common purchases include items such as office furniture and vehicles. Many contract items are available to support an organization's specific mission. Mental Health/Mental Disability community centers, for instance, can obtain vaccines and hospital equipment and supplies. Cities and counties can use the contracts to purchase road equipment and law enforcement supplies. School districts can buy library books, cafeteria food and kitchen equipment.
