Disclosure of Interested Parties-HB1295

Brazosport ISD is required to comply with House Bill 1295, which amended the Texas Government Code by adding Section 2252.908, Disclosure of Interested Parties.  Section 2252.908 prohibits Brazosport ISD from entering into certain contracts with a business entity unless the business entity submits a disclosure of interested parties (Form 1295).  
The law applies to a contract (including amended, extended, or renewed contract) of a governmental entity or state agency that either
(a) requires an action or vote by the governing body of the entity or agency before the contract may be signed; or 
(b) has a value of at least $1 million.
A business entity must file Form 1295 electronically with the Texas Ethics Commission using the online filing application.  
  • Before completing the electronic form, contact Cynthia Roye by at croye@brazosportisd.net to obtain the identification number used by Brazosport ISD to track or identify the contract. The online form can not be completed without this identification number.
  • After completing the electronic form, the business entity will be prompted to print the form. The form must be signed by an authorized agent of the business entity, notarized and submitted to the department/campus contact for the contract or mailed to Brazosport ISD Attn: Business Services Drawer Z, Freeport, Texas 77542
  • Brazosport ISD's Business Office will acknowledge the Form 1295 in the Texas Ethics Commission's electronic system.   Brazosport ISD must acknowledge receipt of the filed Form 1295 no later than the 30th day after the date the contract is executed.  It is critical that these steps are followed in a timely manner.
If you have any questions, please contact Cynthia Roye at 979-730-7048.
