Doing business with TFC

The Texas Facilities Commission is funded by the Legislature to build, maintain, and support the building assets of the State of Texas.  TFC also manages construction projects for other state agencies as requested.  Each fiscal year TFC solicits goods and services in a wide array of categories including custodial services and supplies, to professional services for architects, engineers, general contractors, and a variety of maintenance services needed to keep state buildings open for business.  Through our competitive and open procurement process, TFC supports the growth of our Texas economy.


TFC’s procurement processes encourage competition for even the smallest of purchases.  Small businesses, including Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB), are encouraged to participate in solicitations.
