Additional Freight InformationUpdate 11/25/2019
Freight expenses to return instructional materials that are ordered incorrectly and freight for recycling out-of-adoption materials are allowable allotment expenses. These two scenarios are not for the purposes of getting instructional materials to students; therefore, these funds cannot come out of the state freight fund. Districts can use their allotment funds for these two scenarios by submitting a Technology Services disbursement request and using the Contracted Services category to request the funds. For questions concerning freight, please contact the Instructional Materials Division by submitting an IM Help Desk ticket or emailing instructional.materials@tea.texas.gov.

The official bid list will update as publisher bids are approved by the Instructional Materials Division staff.
