Vertex DIR Vendor Website

Welcome to Vertex Software Corporation's Website for particpating members of the Texas Deparment of Information Resources (DIR) contract and services procurement program!

This site provides information about Vertex's services, DIR Contract, and contacts for DIR participants.

DIR, through its Contracting and Procurement Services Division, assists state agencies and local governments (Customers) with cost-effective acquisition of their information resources by negotiating, managing, and administering contracts with information technology providers. Customers include any Texas state agency, unit of local government, institution of higher education as defined in Section 2054.003, Texas Government Code, and those state agencies purchasing from a DIR contract through an Interagency Agreement, as authorized by Chapter 771, Texas Government Code, any local government as authorized through the Interlocal Cooperation Act, Chapter 791, Texas Government Code, and the state agencies and political subdivisions of other states as authorized by Section 2054.0565, Texas Government Code.

DIR combines the buying power of eligible Customers to obtain volume-discounted pricing for selected technology products and services. In addition to offering volume-discounted pricing, DIR has created the Go DIRect Program to make it easier for Customers to acquire these products and services. Customers place orders with and issue payments directly to the Vendors participating in the Go DIRect Program. Customers contact the vendor for product and/or services and pricing information and send their purchase orders (with the DIR contract number) and payments directly to the Go DIRect vendor, not to DIR. Information regarding the Service Delivery Division and the Go DIRect Program is located on DIR’s Web site at http://www.dir.state.tx.us/busops/index.htm.
