Open Data Center - Contracts
Texas state agencies utilize statewide contracts established by the Comptroller's Office and the Department of Information Resources. Agencies are also authorized to establish individual contracts for services and goods not on statewide contracts. Contract bids and awards valued over $25,000 for commodities and over $100,000 for services are posted on the Electronic State Business Daily. The Legislative Budget Board oversees contract reporting and provides a searchable online database for awarded state contracts.
The Legislative Budget Board is responsible for maintaining the master database of all state government contracts that fall under the following criteria:
- contracts for $14,000 or more for consulting services as defined by Section 2254.021(1), Government Code;
- contracts for $14,000 or more for professional services as defined by Section 2254.002(2), Government Code;
- contracts for $14,000 or more for construction services;
- contracts for $100,000 or more for major information systems as defined by Section 2054.008, Government Code; or
- contracts for $50,000 or more for goods or services that are not consulting services, professional services, construction services or major information systems.
You can use this database to search Texas state contracts by document type, fiscal year, agency, vendor and value.
Contracts are listed by default by NIGP (National Institute of Government Purchasing) commodity codes used by the state of Texas but may be sorted by contract description, contract type or expiration date.
