Aug 19, 2015

AUSTIN, TX – The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) State & Local Government and Education (SLED) Council launches new Texas Procurement Committee focusing on the implementation of major procurement reforms adopted by the Texas state Legislature in 2015.

“As a result of important procurement reforms recently implemented by the Texas legislature, the creation of a new SLED committee here in Texas is very important,” said Jennifer Grutzius, National Director, State & Local Government and Education (SLED). “This new committee will serve as a voice for our members as we continue to work with state officials on implementing these recent changes."

The committee, open to all CompTIA SLED Council member companies, will also work with Texas state departments on any procurement issues that arise in the future.  The committee will serve members as a central conduit for CompTIA member companies on procurement issues in conjunction with the established CompTIA Texas State Government Affairs Committee. The Texas Procurement Committee expands the SLED Council footprint in the United States and builds on the successful model of the California Procurement Committee.
