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.

    • 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.
