Austin, Texas – June 15, 2017 – Catapult, a leading digital solutions and services firm announced today that it has been awarded the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Deliverables-Based IT Services (DBITS) Contract. DBITS contracts simplify the purchasing process for local and state agencies as well as educational institutions, decreasing the need to create Requests for Proposals (RFPs). DBITS contracts also protect and support agencies by granting access to a select list of pre-approved technology providers at a special rate with shortened lead times to procure services, while providing greater flexibility to meet constituent need.
