The Texas DIR agency provides leadership on what technology solutions and vendors shall be selected to design, run, and maintain computing systems and software for state government, local government, and educational organizations.

A Texas DIR Contract, is a contract with a vendor, or primary vendor, and a group of subcontractors which has been registered in the DIR Contract List. These contracts are maintained by businesses, which include Contracts and Services, Data Center Services, and Enterprise Solution Services.
Some government and educational agencies are required to pick a vendor from a contract, under Texas DIR, while others are not required to use the DIR, but may elect to do so voluntarily. For smaller contracts, especially those under $50,000, the DIR process, which is sometimes regarded as limiting and less than efficient, is usually not required.
