Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) are, in general terms, businesses owned by individuals who are economically disadvantaged and who have been historically underutilized because of their identification as members of specific ethnic groups or women. Certified HUB venders with the State of Texas must be residents of the State of Texas, own at least 51% of the assets and interest of the business, be actively involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, be able to make decisions for the business, and be headquartered in the State of Texas.
To find out more about the TEES and the HUB program, contact the TEES Fiscal Office at (979) 458-7434 or visit the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts HUB site. You can easily use the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) web site( http://www.window.state.tx.us/procurement//cmbl/cmblhub.html to find HUB vendors and their pricing.
