Manufacturers, suppliers, and other vendors wishing to furnish materials, equipment, supplies, and services to the state should register for the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) to receive bidding opportunities.
The CMBL is a master database used by the state of Texas purchasing entities to develop a mailing list for vendors to receive bids based on the products or services they can provide to the state of Texas.
The CMBL annual registration fee is $70 and may be paid online by credit, debit card, electronic check (U.S. addresses only) or by paper check at the address below.
Vendors can manage and update their CMBL business profile, as well as submit their CMBL annual registration fee in the online vendor registration system.
The Comptroller of Public Accounts, as well as other purchasing entities, is moving toward electronic notification for solicitations. We strongly suggest that an active, accurate and current email address is maintained on your company's CMBL profile to ensure bid opportunities are received timely.
Before contacting the CMBL Help Desk, please review CMBL Frequently Asked Questions.
