State of Texas: Department of Information Resources
NTT DATA holds several contracts with the State of Texas through the Department of Information Resources DIR Cooperative Contracts Program.
This DIR Cooperative Contracts Program allows customers to purchase items directly from a DIR-contracted vendor. Customers contact the vendor for product and pricing information. They also send their purchase orders, with the DIR contract number, and payments directly to the DIR Cooperative Contracts Program vendor, not to DIR. This streamlines the order process so customers receive their products/services quickly. DBITS is a DIR Cooperative Contracts Program contract, so you can go directly to us for your turn-key projects.
