Bid Opportunities

A&M-Commerce does not post actual bid opportunities on this site, but we do post most of our opportunities on the Electronic State Business Daily.

Bid opportunities can also be found at A&M-Commerce public events.

Vendors may contact a buyer by reaching out to our staff at 903.468.3000.

Payment Information

A&M-Commerce uses two methods to procure goods and/or services. These methods are:

  1. Purchase Order—designated by an “AB” followed by a seven-digit number. A copy may be provided to the vendor.
  2. Procurement Card—a purchasing credit card issued by the university to the departments.

No other methods are recognized by the university; therefore, the university is not responsible for payment.

All invoices should reference one of the aforementioned methods and be emailed to [email protected]. If a physical copy must be mailed, please send them to:

Texas A&M University-Commerce
Financial Services
P.O. Box 3011
Commerce, TX 75429

By Texas Law, A&M-Commerce has 30 days to pay an invoice once the goods or services have been received. Vendors are paid interest if payment is processed after 30 days. For more information, please visit Texas Government Code Chapter 2251 or our Accounts Payable office.


Texas A&M University-Commerce is a proud member of the Texas Universities HUB Coordinators Alliance (TUHCA). The TUHCA was created in an effort to reach minority and woman-owned businesses and raise awareness of procurement opportunities within higher education. There are 19 institutions of higher education that comprise the TUHCA in North/Northeast Texas.


  1. Any vendor wishing to challenge a purchase award made by Procurement Services must make a written request to the Chief Procurement Officer (CPO) to review the transaction. The request for review must be made within three working days of the notification of award.
  2. The CPO will review the award and provide a written explanation of the decision to the vendor making the request. In the event that the CPO review discovers any significant deviation from the rules, the award may be changed at the discretion of the CPO.
  3. The vendor may appeal the decision, within three working days, to the CPO. The CPO will render a decision.
  4. If the vendor does not agree with the decision of the CPO, the vendor may appeal to the Vice President of Business Administration, whose decision will be final.
