SPD has introduced a new way to compare highway material prices with the Texas SmartBuy Highway Materials Rate Calculator.
This new calculator feature helps users determine best value by comparing vendor's material and delivery costs together. Customers can locate the lowest priced contractor based on a combination of material and delivery costs to a specific location or for pickup. Google mapping is integrated into the system so customers can select destinations by address, or latitude/longitude coordinates and determine the most accurate delivery distances without leaving Texas SmartBuy.

4 new regional contracts for road and highway asphaltic and non-asphaltic building materials are now available and were developed by the Comptroller's Statewide Procurement Division (SPD). These contracts use the purchasing regions from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), consistent with the previous highway materials contract. The contract numbers and terms are listed below.
748-S1: South: Dec. 8, 2017, through June 30, 2018
748-W1: West: Dec. 8, 2017, through September 30, 2018
748-N1: North: Dec. 8, 2017, through Dec. 6 2018
748-E1: East: Dec. 8, 2017, through March 7, 2019
Moving forward, SPD will issue solicitations and award subsequent regional contracts on a rotating basis throughout the year.
