Fiscal Year 2017 Contracts

CPRIT makes use of existing competitively procured contracts under the Texas Multiple Award Schedule (TXMAS) Program administered by the Comptroller of Public Accounts’ Statewide Procurement Division and under the Cooperative Contracts Program administered by the Department of Information Resources (DIR). TXMAS adapts existing competitively awarded government contracts to the procurement needs of the state of Texas. The majority of these contracts are awarded by the federal government but may be awarded by any other governmental entity in any state. For the Cooperative Contracts Program, DIR uses the bulk buying power of the State of Texas to secure aggressive discounts on IT products and services without the need for a lengthy procurement process by individual entities. All of these contracts comply with state purchasing requirements.
