What is TXMAS?

The Texas Procurement and Support Services (TPASS) established Texas Multiple Award Schedule (TXMAS) contracts are an alternative purchasing method to competitive bids and proposals. The prices are considered most favored customer rates and satisfy any state requirement relating to competitive bids or proposals.

These TXMAS contracts are based on Federal General Service Administration (GSA) schedule contracts. GSA has completed the federally mandated contracting requirements, competition, pricing, small business and other contracting evaluations required so users can quickly procure needed professional services. The prices reflected on GSA schedule contracts are the most favored customer (MFC) prices. For more information on the TXMAS program, visit TPASS' website.

How does it work?

  • We meet with you to define a statement of work.
  • We develop a proposal based on our established most favored customer rates.
  • You issue a purchase order and file it with TXMAS.
  • We start the work.

How do we get started?

Contact us and we can help you develop your statement of work. We could have a contract in place to begin work in a matter of weeks.
