Register as a State of Texas Vendor to Receive Bid Opportunities Now

The CMBL is a master database used by State of Texas purchasing entities to develop a mailing list for vendors to receive bids based on the products or services they can provide to the State of Texas.

Manufacturers, suppliers, and other vendors wishing to furnish materials, equipment, supplies, and services to the state should register for the CMBL to receive bidding opportunities.

Note: In consideration of a contract award, vendors must be in good standing with the state, and if applicable, their franchise tax account status must be “ACTIVE.” (Review FAQs, the list of taxable entities, including Texas Franchise Tax Forms, and to confirm whether your business entity is subject to the franchise tax.)

The CMBL annual registration fee is $70.00 and may be paid on-line by credit/debit card or check debit (US addresses only) or via a printable application.
