Initially 13 state agencies, representing 65,000 seats, signed a letter of intent to participate in this agreement and have been actively involved throughout the procurement process. ...

We have created a new and repeatable approach to the delivery of email solutions across state government and have used DIR's purchasing volume to leverage the benefits to local government and education. This is a good deal for Texas," said Larry Olson, Chief Technology Officer for the State of Texas.
