How DIR's Web Release Affects Vendors

​As a DIR vendor, if you have had a contract with us for some time, your contracts may be tied to older versions of DIR's website. 

When we launched the newest version of the DIR website with improved search capabilities, we made it easier for your customers to find your contracts. But that only works from our end.

If your company website points to an older version of our DIR website, you will need to update those links.

It's easy. Here's how:

To find the current link to your DIR contract

Search for your contract on the DIR website – using the last four numbers of the contract number is an easy way.

  • EXAMPLE: If your contract is "DIR-AAA-1111," search on "1111"

Click on the contract link within the search results. You may choose to filter by "All Contracts and Services within "Content Type" to make your contract even more visible.

Copy the URL from the address bar, deleting the search term at the end. This is the new link to your contract page.

 

Contact us if you have any questions.

  • Your contract manager is always your best source of communication, but if you can't find who you are looking for, please visit our Contact DIR page.

To update your link to the "Cooperative Contracts Overview"

As a DIR vendor, you are also required to link to the Cooperative Contracts Overview page. That page address is now http://dir.texas.gov/View-About-DIR/Pages/Content.aspx?id=41 .

Other key DIR pages include

To find other relevant web pages, please use the search bar at the top of every DIR page. You may find that filtering by "Page" elevates certain results. Just remember to delete the search term at the end of the resulting URL for the cleanest address.

NOTE: All vendor pages will need to be updated, even if your site currently redirects. Please check with your web administrators to make sure your links are up to date and point directly to your new DIR website address by following the steps outlined above.

We appreciate your partnership with DIR and thank you for your efforts.
