Home / About TEA
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) receives its funding through both state and federal sources. TEA is one of the first state agencies to post its check register
online. Below are links to the agency’s financial documents.
TEA's Procurement and Historically Underutilized Business Program page provides information about ;procurements over $25,000, no-bid contracts, contracts over $100,000, and student assessment procurements. It also provides details about TEA's efforts to meet legislative Historically Underutilized Business contract goals.
The Texas Education Agency submits a Legislative Appropriations Request to the Legislative Budget Board every two years. The Texas Legislature adopts the state budget that funds state operations.
Once lawmakers approve the appropriations for the agency, a two-year operating budget is created. This funds agency operations and programs for the biennium. Following are recent TEA operating budgets:
The TEA Check Register provides details on payments made to businesses, school districts and individuals for fiscal years 2008 through 2015. This data is separated by year and listed alphabetically by vendor name.
The TEA Payment Report is a tool for School districts, education service centers, charter schools, colleges and universities, state agencies, and other organizations/businesses to get information about their payments from the TEA.
State law requires TEA to post an Internal Audit Annual Report on our website each year. This report is submitted annually to the State Auditor’s Office, Governor’s Office, Legislative Budget Board, and the Sunset Advisory Commission.
