Procurement Services Responsibility

The Procurement Services (PS) department is responsible for the procurement, contracting, and payment of all supplies, materials, equipment, and services for TTU. PS oversees credit cards as well as the HUB and Small Business program. TTU assumes no liability for payment of goods or services except those acquired in accordance with current purchasing, contracting, and payment regulations and policies, and in accordance with Texas law.


State of Texas law requires that state officers and employees may not have direct or indirect interests. An officer or employee who exercises discretion in connection with contracts, purchases, payments, claims, and other pecuniary transactions commits to an offense if they solicit, accept, or agree to accept any benefit from any person or entity that the employee or officer knows is interested in or is likely to become interested in any contract, purchase, payment, claim, or transaction involving a TTU officer's or employee's discretion.

Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program

TTU promotes equal opportunity for all potential vendors to provide materials, supplies, equipment, and services. TTU's HUB Program seeks to identify HUB's and aid vendors in the competitive procurement process. TTU assures that qualified, certified HUB vendors will have the opportunity to participate in a competitive procurement.

Bid Requirements

The dollar amounts herein are for both one-time and cumulative purchases of the same goods or services over the course of a fiscal year (September 1-August 31). TTU also participates in several purchasing cooperatives (E&I, BuyBoard, TIPS, Omnia, UT Alliance, and others) or any State of Texas contract, or federal (GSA) contract.

Vendor Registration

Vendors are required to complete a vendor setup form before any purchase order or payment will be processed. The vendor setup form will be sent electronically to the email address that is provided to Vendor Services. Once the form is completed, a record will be created in our vendor network.


When a formal procurement process is required, TTU uses a program referred to as "TechBid." It is recommended that each vendor register for this program. Vendors will be notified of any procurement opportunity relating to the commodity type(s) they register for. Vendors may register at the link below.

Invoices & Payments

To expedite payments, TTU encourages all vendors to register for ACH (Direct Deposit, net 15 terms) or SUA (Credit Card, net 5 terms) payments. Email vendor.services@ttu.edu for the registration form. Invoices for payment shall be sent to the Payment Strategies office payment.strategies@ttu.edu.

Tax Status

TTU claims an exemption from sales taxes under Tax Code § 151.309 or § 151.310.
