HUB Programs

About the A&M System Offices HUB Program

The A&M System Offices is committed to a business program of advocacy, education, knowledge, development and utilization that will achieve Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) procurement participation.

The Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) program is a State of Texas initiative to promote full and equal business opportunities for all businesses in an effort to remedy disparity in state procurement and contracting in accordance with the HUB utilization goals specified in the State of Texas Disparity Study. A HUB is an entity as defined within Texas Government Code, Title 10, Subtitle D, Chapter 2161.

The A&M System Office HUB Program ensures the system’s good faith effort to include HUB businesses in its procurement efforts. This good faith effort involves evaluating and determining subcontracting opportunities, administering the mentor/protégé program, participating in marketing and outreach efforts to promote contracting and subcontracting opportunities in an effort to achieve HUB participation, and reporting HUB expenditures to the Texas State Comptroller.

A&M System Office of Procurement and Business Services | HUB Program is responsible for: 
  • Identifying and promoting the use of HUBs to meet the procurement needs of the System Offices
  • Hosting, sponsoring, and attending forums, fairs, and events to recruit and utilize HUBs
  • Encouraging the use of the Mentor/Protégé Program and sponsoring eligible teams for major construction projects
  • Developing and implementing HUB Program initiatives
  • Providing HUB training and assistance to staff
  • Monitoring HUB compliance
