Pursuant to Texas Government Code, §2161.062(e), state agencies with biennial budgets that exceed $10 million shall designate a staff member to serve as the Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Coordinator for the agency. The HUB Coordinator will advise and assist agency executive directors and staff in complying with HUB requirements, facilitating the agency's good faith effort to increase HUB participation, preparing and submitting HUB reports, monitoring contracts for HUB compliance, and coordinating marketing and outreach HUB efforts.
It is the responsibility of each agency to provide the Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) with the name, phone number, fax number and e-mail address of their designated HUB Coordinator.
The Statewide HUB Program collaborates with various minority and women business trade organizations and development centers to circulate information pertaining to the initiatives of the Statewide HUB Program. Identified below are some of the minority and women trade organizations and development centers the Statewide HUB Program has work with. In addition, these entities have expressed their willingness to accept notices of subcontracting opportunities from vendors to distribute to their minority and woman-owned business members.

State agencies and universities are constantly looking to work with businesses certified as HUBs. The statewide HUB Program is here to provide information about certification and the state government procurement process to assist you in marketing your company to these entities. To provide additional assistance, we have gathered information on organizations that provide assistance in business development. They offer one-on-one consultation, training workshops and networking opportunities.
