Authority/Reference(s) Texas Government Code §2262.055(d)
Revision Date September 1, 2019

Policy

No earlier than 90 days prior to the effective date of a contract, contract staff must check the Comptroller’s Vendor Performance Tracking System (VPTS) when determining whether it’s in DFPS’ best interest to enter into a contract with an entity.

VPTS tracks a vendor’s grade and detailed reports that can be used as best-value evaluation when solicitations contain the Vendor Performance Best Value Clause.

As referenced in Vendor Performance Reporting for DFPS Contracts policy, vendors performance (unless exempt) are reported to VPTS for purchases of $25,000 or more by state agencies.
