|Rebate Reporting Requirement for Federal||Pursuant to Texas Government Code § 2155.510(b), rebates generated from TXMAS contract purchases made in whole or in part with federal funds must be reported by the purchasing agency for reporting, and reconciliation purposes with the appropriate federal funding agency. Each quarter of the State's fiscal year (September 1 through August 31), TXMAS contractors rebate 0.73875% of their TXMAS sales to the State of Texas via the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA). It is the purchasing entity's responsibility to report the amount of rebate to the federal fund-provider using the above percent based on the total dollar value of the TXMAS purchase order.
Example: A purchasing entity receives and uses federal funds of $50,000 to purchase items/services on a TXMAS contract. The purchasing entity must report to the federal fund-provider that a sales rebate of $369.37 ($50,000 * 0.73875% = $369.37) will be paid to the State of Texas by the TXMAS contractor.

• Aid purchasers in making a best value determination based on vendor past performance
• Protect the state from vendors with unethical business practices
• Provide performance scores in four measurable categories for the CMBL vendors
• Track vendor performance for delegated and exempt purchases
