The Texas DIR contract provides state and local government entities, as well as educational institutions in Texas and outside of Texas, with means to procure solutions from vendors.

Canon said it has once again been awarded the contract as a result of the company’s efforts managing document output challenges in today’s ever-changing office environment as seen through its high-quality solutions, robust product portfolio and pricing.
“NASPO ValuePoint is excited to have made awards on the third iteration of the Copier & Managed Print Services Contract,” said Bart Lemmon, Supplier Development Director, NASPO and NASPO ValuePoint. “The new agreement has expanded the scope beyond just copiers and printers to meet the complex office equipment needs of the states and their users. With the expanded scope and breadth of offerings, we expect to see an increase in participating states that adopt these ValuePoint contracts.”
While the contract is held through Canon U.S.A., sales and services are also provided through the company’s nationwide network of participating authorised dealers.
“The office environment has been changing over the past decade, but through software and print technology advances and a managed enterprise-wide approach to delivering print services, Canon is able to provide a new level of efficiency for our customers,” said Shinichi Yoshida, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “We are proud to be awarded the NASPO ValuePoint Copiers & Managed Services state contract in all six product groups as it reflects the type of high-quality, sustainable products we deliver to our customers across a variety of markets.”
