Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) Policy

The mission of the HUB program is to provide assistance to historically underutilized businesses through outreach efforts, such as education and training in doing business with the State of Texas, in order to afford these businesses a fair opportunity to participate in the competitive procurement process. The Texas Legislative Council is dedicated to promoting opportunities for these small and historically disadvantaged businesses to compete for the agency's purchases and contracts. The council's policy is to foster an environment that will advance and enhance participation from such vendors in all areas of the agency.

The council's HUB program is part of the agency's purchasing section and is overseen by the HUB coordinator. Application for HUB certification should be submitted to the comptroller of public accounts' statewide HUB Program.
