Procurement Information




The Purchasing Department of the Public Utility Commission (PUC) ensures that all purchases made comply with state law and the rules and regulations of the Comptroller of Public Accounts/Texas Procurement and Support Services (CPA/TPASS). Purchasing is a centralized function at the PUC. Division purchasing liaisons submit purchase requisitions to the purchasing department for budget approval and processing.


How Can I Do Business With the PUC?

The PUC does not maintain its own bidders list. We are required to solicit pricing only from the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL). If you are not a member, and are interested in obtaining information about the program, you can call CMBL Registration at 512-463-3459.
