LBB CONTRACTS DATABASE
The Contracts Database is the single point of data entry for all
contract information or contract documents that state entities are required to report to the LBB either by statute
or the General Appropriations Act (GAA).
The LBB has redesigned its Contracts Database to comply with reporting and oversight provisions of the GAA for the 2016-17 biennium. The old database was closed to data
entry effective August 15, 2015, and the new database is available beginning September 1, 2015.
The old database is still available for historical research and analyses.
CONTRACT REPORTING REQUIREMENTS INFOGRAPHIC
Two recorded video trainings on the Contracts Database are available online:
State Contract Reporting(Instructions for State Agencies of Higher Education), provides detail on data entry and record updates.
The Quick Start Guide is a fast way to orient users with the data entry screens.
The Attestation form is the electronic version of the executive letter that must be reported to the LBB for contracts subject to reporting under the General Appropriations Act, Article IX, Section 7.12.
The Transition Guide summarizes steps agencies and institutions must take to update records that were transferred from the old database to the new for contracts that are effective in fiscal year 2016.
