Important Note for Purchasing

Beginning January 1, 2022, Texas Government Code § 2054.0593 mandates that state agencies and Institutions of Higher Education must only enter or renew contracts to receive cloud computing services that comply with TX-RAMP requirements.

In the 87th Legislative Session, the Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 475, requiring the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) to establish a state risk and authorization management program that provides “a standardized approach for security assessment, authorization, and continuous monitoring of cloud computing services that process the data of a state agency.”  

To comply, DIR established a framework for collecting information about cloud services security and assessing compliance with required controls and documentation. 

This may initially lead to a delay in the risk assessment process for cloud services while TWU works to get required certifications established.
