UT System Office of HUB Development

A Model of Excellence, UT System HUB Policy

It is the policy of The University of Texas System to promote full and equal opportunity for all businesses to supply the goods and services needed to support the mission, administrative, and logistical operations of UT System Administration and the UT System institutions. UT System Administration and UT System institutions commit to a good faith effort to increase purchases from and contract awards to Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) firms consistent with State of Texas goals for HUB participation and overall economic development.

 

Program Highlights

  • HUB Program staff members are assigned specific construction markets. Each will be working with prime contractors and large first-tier subcontractors to identify opportunities for HUB special trade firms.

  • Continuing initiative to sponsor/participate in market-based outreach programs

  • Mentor Protégé Program – created to foster long-term relationships between prime contractors and HUBs to increase the ability of HUBs to contract with the state or to receive subcontracts under a state contract. In addition, the program is also designed to provide professional guidance and support to Protégé firms to facilitate their growth and development.

  • Technical Assistance Program – created to provide training tools that address major barriers to HUBs in construction, professional and other services, and commodities including financing, bonding, marketing, safety, insurance and proposal response. Additionally, the Technical Assistance program can provide information on resources available that can assist HUBs as well as stay abreast of issues that may impact HUB firms in the surety, banking, insurance, and construction industries.
