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 competitive bid process and deeply discounted prices have been negotiated. Learn more about our contracting process.

Eligibility 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.

How Customers Outside of Texas Purchase from Cooperative Contracts

Step 1. Before purchasing the technology you need, you must complete the Interlocal Cooperation Contract (ICC)

The ICC allows:

  • controlling law to be the law of your state   
  • you to define the venue for litigation   
  • you to define dispute resolution procedures

The ICC enables you to purchase from any contract available through the Cooperative Contracts program. To complete the ICC:

To complete the ICC:

  • Download and fill out the Interlocal Cooperation Contract - PDF (542 KB).
  • Email the electronic copy to for DIR's consideration. 
    • Please do not sign the fillable form, but include in the email the name and email address of the person authorized to sign on behalf of your organization.
  • DIR will send the finalized ICC to you for signature via DocuSign.
  • Once the ICC is approved and signed by DIR, the fully executed ICC will be sent to you via DocuSign.

Step 2. Once the ICC has been fully executed by both parties, here’s how to search for the IT product or service you’re looking for:

  • 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.

Step 3. 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 ICC 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.
