Contract Management Office

The Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) Contract Management Office (SCM) assists state agencies, institutions of higher education, CO-OPs, contractors, and internal customers with day-to-day contract management, contract administration, reporting requirements and vendor performance issues related to statewide contracts. We encourage you to establish an active working relationship with SCM to ensure that our statewide contracts are giving you the best value.

SCM's purpose is to efficiently and effectively manage state contracts using best practices, and to promote and ensure adherence with the State of Texas Contract Management Guide within SPD and throughout the state. In addition, SCM assists over 220 state agencies and almost 2,000 CO-OP members with effective contract management issues, such as price increase requests, contract amendments and reporting requirements. The SCM team actively manages Emergency Contingency Contracts, SPD Term Contracts, SPD Managed Contracts and provides support and oversight for the management of TXMAS Contracts, Travel and Fleet Contracts.
