Procurement and Bid Opportunities

To find out more about procurement opportunities with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), see the state’s Electronic State Business Daily (ESBD) Section of the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts at: http://www.txsmartbuy.com/sp.


Active Contracts

Government Code Section 2054.126(d) requires posting of active contracts with a value greater than $100,000. In addition, Government Code 2261.253 requires TDLR to post certain information for active contracts. TDLR post all contracts that require reporting to the Legislative Budge Board (LBB).

The current active contracts are shown below:

Weaver & Tidwell, Internal Audit Services, $75,337.50

Legal Files Software, Legal Files, $45,002.00


State Agency Procurement & Contract Management Procedures

TDLR is required to post a contract management guide establishing consistent contracting policies and practices to be followed by the agency that is consistent with the Comptroller’s Texas Procurement and Contract Management Guide. TDLR’S Procurement and Contract Management Guide (PDF) is posted pursuant to Government Code Section 2261.256.

In accordance with state law, the TDLR seeks competition before awarding contracts. In addition, state law provides that state agencies may enter into certain contracts under programs where the competitive bid process takes place at the state level, rather than the agency level, to promote efficiency in contracting and to take advantage of the state’s purchasing power. Procurements with a value of less than $5,000 do not require competitive bidding.
