Dear Ms. Hunter, GIMP is open source software, available for download by anybody at no charge, subject to a specific licensing agreement. That licensing agreement does not make any warranty of accessibility. If the state of Texas purchased this software, it was obtained from a third party, not directly from the GIMP project. Any responsibility for documenting accessibility would lie with that third party.
See http://www.gimp.org for more information about the project. Best regards, Bill Skaggs (This email is purely informative. I do not have the right to speak for the GIMP project.)
