Quick Start for:

Taking care of Texans and the business of Texas

Do you have a Historically Underutilized Business (HUB)?

  • Texas is your business, and opening doors and opportunities for you is ours. The state awarded more than $1.8 billion in contracts and more than $700 million in subcontracting opportunities to HUB-certified companies in fiscal 2007.

    Certifying your minority- or women-owned business in the Statewide HUB Program can give you opportunities to do business with more than 300 state entities.
  • Our agency HUB program always strives to exceed the Legislature’s goals for HUB participation. We’re committed to promoting equal opportunities in our contract awards, working with both prime contractors and HUB subcontractors. And we offer a toll-free HUB Program Information line to obtain current bid opportunities and other information.
