Purchase Orders and Other Contractual Documents

A purchase order constitutes a legal contract between the agency and a vendor. Only TREC and TALCB purchasers are authorized to issue a purchase order to procure goods and services on behalf of the agency. A vendor that fills an order is agreeing to the price and the terms on the purchase order. If the price listed on the purchase order is incorrect or if the vendor cannot comply with the terms, it is the vendor's responsibility to contact the Financial Services Division before filling the order. Please note that some procurements require other contractual documents such as written agreements executed by both TREC or TALCB and the vendor.
