Current TCEQ Contracts and Purchase Orders

List of current TCEQ contracts and purchase orders.

About Contracts & 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, developed by the CPA, 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, and Texas Multiple Awards Schedule (TXMAS).

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.
