Internal Repair Purchases

An internal repair is a repair to state-owned equipment that cannot be reasonably defined prior to the actual repair and the extent of the repair needed cannot be determined until the equipment is disassembled. Internal repairs are usually the result of an unexpected, basic service outage. For example, the unexpected failure of a building’s air conditioner may result in unanticipated repair to electrical circuitry, which would constitute an internal repair. Internal repairs must include labor and may include parts.

Competitive award is not required for an internal repair.  However, internal repairs are reported on the Electronic State Business Daily (ESBD), LBB website, and other transparency reports as required by state purchasing policies and procedures.

Internal Repair Procedures:

To limit agency liability, the following statement is added to the Purchase Order as a note to the supplier:
“Not to exceed {insert reasonable dollar limit} for repair services unless prior authorization is provided by the agency.”
After the equipment is taken apart and the issue identified, the vendor provides a quote to TPWD for review and approval.  If approved, the purchaser issues a contract amendment to formally approve the additional services and cost.

Emergency Purchases

Emergencies occur as the result of unforeseeable circumstances and may require an immediate response to avert an actual or potential public threat. If a situation arises in which compliance with normal procurement practices is impractical or contrary to the public interest, an emergency purchase may be warranted to prevent a hazard to life, health, safety, welfare, property or to avoid undue additional cost to the state.

Emergency Contract Awards are reported on the ESBD, LBB website, and other transparency reports as required by state purchasing policies and procedures.

In official recognition of the adoption of this resolution in a lawfully called public meeting of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission, we hereby affix our signatures this 25th day of January, 2024.
