State Use Reports

The 77th Legislature required agencies to report to TPASS and the Texas Council on Purchasing from People with Disabilities all procurements outside the State Use Program, cost paid, and reasons for not purchasing from the program. State law requires agencies to purchase from the State Use Program unless the needed products or services meet certain exceptions.


  • When the product or service available through the set-aside program does not meet the reasonable requirement of the agency. This may include an inability to meet product specifications or to deliver the needed product within a certain period of time.
  • The inability to provide temporary services in certain regions of the state

The State Use Report is a legislatively mandated report and must be submitted by the 15th of each month for exceptions purchased in the previous month. A reminder will be sent electronically to the State Use Coordinators on the 1st working day of each month.

Effective September of 2003, the state use reports are submitted online.
