Searching for HUBs on the CMBL

House Bill 3560, 80th Legislature, Regular Session, amended §2161.123 of the Government Code to require each state agency to establish its own goals for contracting with historically underutilized businesses (HUBs) in each procurement category based on scheduled fiscal year expenditures and the availability of HUBs in each category, as determined by SSSD rules.

To determine availability of HUBs by class and item codes and generate a list of HUBs from the Centralized Master Bidders List, use the following guide with step-by-step instructions. Agencies should follow this process if they establish contracting goals that differ from the statewide contracting goals.
