Resources for Customers Outside of Texas

Cooperative Contracts is a cooperative purchasing program for technology products and services operated by DIR on behalf of the state of Texas. All the procurement work has already been done for you: vendors have responded and been awarded contracts through a competitively bid process and deeply discounted prices have been negotiated.

Eligilibility Overview

Out-of-state public entities are welcome to purchase from us (see TGC 2054.0565). We rely on the Interlocal Cooperation Act, Section 791.025 to document these transactions.

The Interstate Cooperation Agreement (formerly Interlocal Cooperation Agreement) allows:

  • Controlling law to be the law of your state   
  • You to define the venue for litigation   
  • You to define dispute resolution procedures

The ISC enables you to purchase from any contract available through the Cooperative Contracts program.

Before purchasing any technology commodity, out-of-state public entities must have an executed Interstate Cooperation Contract (ISC). Please view the list, (organized by state), below to determine if your organization already has an agreement in place with DIR.

Steps to complete the ISC:

Step 1. Download the fillable form Interstate Cooperation Contract- PDF (246 KB).

Step 2. Complete the form.

You will need to know: (Click the + to see an example.)

    Organization name and principal place of business

    For Section IV: Requested term of contract

    For Section V: Governing Law and Other Representations

    For Section VII: Terms and Conditions for out-of-state DIR customers

    For Section VIII Notification

    For the signature block

    The individual signing must be authorized to sign on behalf of your organization.

Step 3. Email the completed form to interstatecontracts@dir.texas.gov

A DIR representative will contact you for any clarifications before fully executing the ISC.

Step 4. DIR will send the fully executed copy of the ISC to you

Welcome to DIR! You may begin using DIR’s cooperative contracts.

To search for IT products and services:

  • At the top of this page, enter a keyword term in the search box.
  • Once the search results populate the page, select the filter for "All Contracts & Services" under “Content Type”.
  • From there, further refine search results by filtering via product type, NIGP commodity code, or other filter categories.
  • You may also select the link to view a brief tutorial on searching for DIR contracts

To make a purchase, simply issue your purchase order directly to the vendor. (Note: The DIR contract number must be referenced on the purchase order.)

The ISC allows you to use any DIR Cooperative Contract, so any terms specific to an individual vendor can be addressed through the purchase order process, as long as those terms do not conflict with or detract from the terms of the master contract.
