Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL)

Manufacturers, suppliers, and other vendors wishing to furnish materials, equipment, supplies, and services to the state should register for the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) to receive bidding opportunities.

The CMBL is a master database used by the state of Texas purchasing entities to develop a mailing list for vendors to receive bids based on the products or services they can provide to the state of Texas.

The CMBL annual registration fee is $70 and may be paid on-line by credit/debit card or check debit (U.S. addresses only) or via a printable application (PDF).

Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) Bid Notification
