The Attorney General has stated that the Texas Constitution prohibits a state agency from purchasing food, coffee, cream, sugar, and similar items that are to be consumed by employees or visitors to the university.
However, a state agency may purchase equipment and supplies related to the preparation or storage of food, coffee, cream, sugar, and similar items. Examples include refrigerators, ranges, sinks, coffee makers, cups, soap, and dish towels.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU?
You cannot use “State Funds – 11 accounts” to purchase food, coffee, cream sugar, and similar items. If you have any questions, please contact Doug Arney at
