Information For

Organizations Outside of Texas

DIR has established a Cooperative Contracts Purchasing Program which offers a wide range of product offerings, services and technology solutions.   We’ve done all of the preliminary procurement work, so you can focus on finding the right technology solution for your organization.

Out-of-state public entities are welcome to purchase through DIR as long as an Interstate Cooperation Agreement (ISC) is established. We rely on the Interlocal Cooperation Act, §791.025 to document these transactions.
