Authority/Reference(s) Texas Government Code §2262.055(d)
Revision Date January 15, 2019

Policy

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

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.

Vendors (unless exempt) are reported to VPTS for purchases of $25,000 or more by state agencies.
