TEA began serving schools, universities, cities, counties, and state agencies because of the lack of innovation and competitiveness in many of their purchasing methods. Unlike the GLO (General Land Office) state power program, which is never competitively bid, TEA makes energy providers compete for your business. TEA includes the GLO, so that you can see their actual costs accurately compared to other offers, along with all taxes and fees. Other programs cities and counties have used in the past include TCAP, TASB Buyboard and P3 – Public Power Pool which have not kept pace with market, lacking the competition and transparency taxpayers deserve. TEA can display a superior purchasing method, including multiple, vetted bidders, expert advice, reverse auctions, and renewable options to deliver the lowest possible energy spend. Increased budget certainty, transparency and simplicity of transaction are all reasons that the State of Texas has chosen TEA. All necessary RFPs are conducted on your behalf.
