Contract Awards and Contract Extensions

Contract awards for all contracts, with the exception of auditors, are made by ERS’ Board of Trustees (“Board”). Any contract being considered for award will be posted on the ERS website as a Board agenda item.  In addition, ERS posts contract award notices to Texas’ Electronic State Business Daily and the Texas Register. ERS also provides notice directly to the winning bidder(s). Contract extensions are decided on a case-by-case basis as determined by ERS.
