TPASS Contract Management Office (TCMO)

The TPASS Contract Management Office (TCMO) 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 the TCMO to ensure that our statewide contracts are giving you the best value.

The TCMO was created 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 TPASS and throughout the state. In addition, the TCMO 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 TCMO team actively manages Emergency Contingency Contracts, TPASS Term Contracts, TPASS Managed Contracts and provides support and oversight for the management of TXMAS Contracts, Travel and Fleet Contracts and Hotel Rate Agreements.
