H-GAC procures a wide variety of goods and services and we are committed to increasing participation in our procurement program. The 2019 Procurement Plan is the forecast to assist entities in doing business with H-GAC. Our goal is to assist firms by publishing this forecast to provide procurement opportunities as early in the acquisition process as possible. All procurement opportunities >$50k will be advertised according to state law and the solicitation package will be available on this website for download. Procurements <$50k are sent out by H-GAC procurement staff for quotes/bids at the time of need. If you are interested in becoming part of the solicitation list for any procurement, please submit your information to email@example.com.

Councils of Governments (COGs) are political subdivisions of the State of Texas. A COG may purchase goods or a service only if the COG complies with the same provisions for purchasing goods or a service that are equivalent to the provisions, including Chapter 252, Local Government Code and Chapter 2254, Texas Government Code, applying to a local government. COGs must also comply with certain federal requirements when procurement involves the expenditure of federal funds.

Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code requires vendors and consultants contracting or seeking to contract with H-GAC to file a conflict of interest questionnaire (CIQ) if they have an employment or other business relationship with an H-GAC officer or an officer’s close family member. The required questionnaire is located at the Texas Ethics Commission website. H-GAC officers include its Board of Directors and Executive Director.
The CIQ must be completed and filed with a bid/proposal response if an employment or business relationship defined in the law exists.
Texas Legislature adopted House Bill 1295, which added section 2252.908 of the Government Code. The law states that a governmental entity or state agency may not enter certain contracts with a business entity unless the business entity submits a disclosure of interested parties to the governmental entity or state agency at the time the business entity submits the signed contract to the governmental entity or state agency. The required form and instructions are located at the Texas Ethics Commission Website.
