In 1993, the legislature passed HB 2626 (73R) and tasked the Council on Competitive Government (CCG) with a review of state print services. The review performed by CCG lead to a consolidation of approximately 33 state agency print shops to a total of nine consolidated print shops. Over time the shops have further consolidated leading to the five shops in existence today. These print shops are:

  • Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS)
  • Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT)
  • Texas Department of State Health Services
  • Texas Workforce Commission
  • University of Texas (UT)

In 2010, CCG, in conjunction with the State Print Shops, Texas Department of Criminal Justice Texas Correctional Industries (TCI) and the Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) of the Comptroller of Public Accounts implemented a universal online job request form that enables agencies to submit a job request once and receive responses from all the state and TCI print shops. In addition, CCG has established overarching print shop contracts with each print shop that eliminate the need for individual interagency agreement contracts. In 2014, CCG awarded contracts to commercial print shops to meet the state's growing printing needs

For information on this procurement process and associated purchasing requirements please reference Section 2.16.3 of the State of Texas Procurement Manual and the State Print Shop FAQ (PDF).
