What is HGAC?
The Houston-Galveston Area Council (H GAC) is the largest of 24 Councils of Government (COG) in Texas,and is a political subdivision of the State of Texas. It has been serving local governments for more than 30 years.
H GAC's Cooperative Purchasing Program, known as HGACBuy, was established pursuant to Texas' "Interlocal Cooperation Act". The "Act" allows local governments and certain non-profits to use contracts appropriately established by another government entity. All that's necessary is agreement of the parties, which is legally established thru execution of H GAC's Interlocal Contract by the End User.
HGACBuy has established Interlocal Contracts with thousands of End Users throughout Texas and across the United States. We are a nationwide Program. The Interlocal Contract is the required legal document that establishes a link between the End User and HGACBuy and gives the End User access to HGACBuy contracts. Use of our Program for a particular purchase by any government entity is strictly at the discretion of that entity.
Program procedures conform to the requirements of Texas' statutes applicable to competitive bids (IFBs) and competitive proposals (RFPs). Products and services are contracted after having been subjected to either a competitive IFB or RFP process. Contracts are "blanket" type, usually for a term of two years. HGACBuy does not purchase anything itself, and no guarantee of any purchase quantities by End Users is made.
