Cooperative Purchasing Membership


Texas SmartBuy Membership logo with gray background and tagline Your Texas Trusted Purchasing Partner

We are happy to announce we will soon roll out the new Texas SmartBuy Members application. This application will allow non-members to submit new membership applications online, and new and existing members to pay the annual membership fee online.

Authorized signers for each existing entity will now have the ability to update account information and submit forms online (resolutions or required documents for proof of eligibility). The Texas SmartBuy active member list will also be accessible through the new Member application portal on Texas SmartBuy.

Let us know if we can help answer any questions you may have about the Texas SmartBuy Membership Program or our purchasing portal txsmartbuy.com. Email us with any questions.
