The Statewide Procurement Division’s (SPD) Texas Multiple Award Schedule (TXMAS) Program establishes TXMAS contracts to supplement SPD Term Contracts. The TXMAS Program adapts existing, competitively awarded, governmental contracts such as GSA or VA Schedule contracts to service the procurement needs of state agencies.
TXMAS contracts take advantage of the most favored customer (MFC) pricing and under certain circumstances; an agency or local governmental entity may negotiate a lower price for the goods or services offered on a TXMAS contract. Customers must make a “best value” determination by following the TXMAS purchasing procedures as outlined in the State of Texas Procurement and Contract Management Guide.
