Fraud Alert 

The Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) has been notified of several instances of fraudulent purchase orders being distributed to vendors, unbeknownst to the “issuing” state agency. 

The fraudulent orders appear to utilize a screen capture of an actual agency purchase order taken from the agency’s website with slight variations made to actual staff email addresses. The orders also contain a delivery address that is controlled by the perpetrator, not the agency. The purchase orders contain hyphens (-) rather than periods (.) in the email address extensions. In addition, some of the delivery addresses appear to be to personal residences, apartments or warehouses. So far, all fraudulent purchase orders have contained IT-related commodity items. 

Example of fraudulent email address:

What You Can Do

Current TCEQ Contracts and Purchase Orders

List of current TCEQ contracts and purchase orders.

In accordance with state law, the TCEQ seeks competition before awarding contracts exceeding $5,000. In addition, state law provides that state agencies, including the TCEQ, 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.

These programs include the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA or Comptroller) Term Contracts, the Comptroller’s Non-Automated Contracts, certain Department of Information Resources (DIR) contracts, Texas Multiple Awards Schedule (TXMAS) developed by the CPA, and Council on Competitive Government (CCG) contracts.

In addition, the TCEQ has statutory authority to issue direct awards for certain work related to the cleanup of petroleum storage tank sites. Agencies may also purchase publications without seeking bids in certain circumstances.

The acquisition of these goods and services are categorized by Purchasing Category Codes (PCC), which are codes used to document the purchase method and the commodity type. The following chart lists the codes and the procurement method.

The list of active contracts and purchase orders that the TCEQ has set forth can be found on the Current TCEQ Contracts and Purchase Orders Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. This list is updated every Monday. If you would like to view the actual contract, purchase order or solicitation document, please go to TCEQ's Online Records. Under the Record Series section, select "FA / Contracts and Leases" or "FA / Purchase Orders" from the drop-down menu.  Under the Search Criteria section, select "Primary ID from the first drop-down menu and enter the PCR number in the field to the right.  Last, press the Enter key or click on Search button.
