CONTRACTOR PERFORMANCE: The Comptroller of Public Accounts (CPA) administers a vendor performance program for use by all ordering entities per Texas Government Code, Title 10, Subtitle D, Section 2155.077. The Vendor Performance and Debarment Program relies on the ordering entity's participation in gathering information on vendor performance. Ordering Entities shall report vendor performance on purchases over $25,000 from contracts administered by the commission or any other purchase over $25,000 made through delegated authority granted by CPA (TAC 20.108). 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.
