The Comptroller’s Statewide Procurement Division is currently revising the State of Texas Procurement and Contract Management Guide. The guide provides a framework for navigating the complexities of Texas procurement law and offers practical, step-by-step guidance to ensure agencies acquire goods and services in an effective and efficient manner, in compliance with the law.
The State of Texas Procurement and Contract Management Guide, Version 2.0 will be a revision of Version 1.3, which was released in December 2019, and will incorporate recent rule changes as well as procurement-related legislation from the 87th Legislative Session. Version 2.0 of the guide will be released in Fall 2021.
Any questions or feedback can be emailed to the Statewide Procurement Division.
The following documents are being released in anticipation of the effective date, September 1, 2021, of many laws that were passed during the 87th Legislative Session. Agencies are encouraged to review and use the clauses below as appropriate.
These documents do not serve as a substitute for legal counsel. Agency legal counsel should be consulted prior to modifying any text, as slight variations may result in the agency’s non-compliance with applicable statutes and rules. Additionally, public procurement professionals are advised to seek assistance from their agency legal counsel to ensure that solicitations and contracts include transaction-specific terms that protect the interests of the State.
