    Contractor Performance Statewide Procurement Division (SPD), administers a vendor performance program for use by all customers per Texas Government Code (TGC), §2262.055, and 34 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), §20.108. The Vendor Performance relies on the customer's participation in gathering information on vendor performance. State agency customers shall report vendor performance on purchases of$25,000 or more from contracts administered by CPA, or any other purchase of $25,000 or more made through delegated authority granted by CPA (TAC 20.108), or purchases exempt from CPA procurement rules and procedures. State agencies are additionally encouraged to report vendor performance on purchases under $25,000.

    Vendor Performance shall be reported through the CPA VENDOR PERFORMANCE TRACKING SYSTEM.

    The purpose of the Vendor Performance Tracking System is to:
    • Identify vendors that have exceptional performance
    • 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
