The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts created eXpendit to provide information to state agencies and institutions of higher education on how to properly carry out purchase transactions while complying with certain provisions of the constitution, statutes and rules of Texas related to expenditures.

The eXpendit website allows agencies to quickly and easily search for the information they need with a built-in search function. The Expenditure Assistance section can also quickly post updates.
