UT System Office of HUB Programs

Our mission is to promote full and equal opportunity for minority, women, and service-disabled veteran owned businesses to supply goods and services in support of the operations of U. T. System Administration and the U. T. System institutions.  The U. T. System HUB Office is committed to facilitating increased procurement awards to HUB firms consistent with the State's goals for HUB participation while providing education on our procurement processes.  We serve as a resource on HUB processes, rules and requirements to UT System Administration and UT System institution offices.  It is our goal to foster efficient, effective, and mutually beneficial working relationships with UT System offices while complying with all relevant State of Texas rules, laws, and UT System Board policies. 

On August 9, 1990 the University of Texas System Board of Regents approved the Policy of Contracting with Minority and Female-owned small businesses, later renamed the Historically Underutilized Business Policy, establishing its commitment to “promote full and equal opportunity for all businesses to supply the goods and services needed to support mission, administrative, and logistical operations of U. T. System Administration and U. T. System component institutions.” 

Over $10 billion have been spent with HUB firms systemwide since the launch of the program in 1990.  U. T. System Administration and each of its Institutions are required to make a good faith effort to meet or exceed its annual expenditures goals with HUBs in each major procurement category: Heavy Construction, Building Construction, Special Trades, Professional Services, Other Services, and Commodities. 

The Office of HUB Programs is responsible for managing compliance with the HUB requirements for U. T. System administration contracts, purchasing, and expenditures.  It also provides systemwide support of the HUB program through its subject matter expertise, outreach, and analysis.


We do not have a vendor registration list, we use the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL).  For instructions on how to search the CMBL, click on the link below. For questions regarding a UT System Administration procurement, we will direct your questions/inquiries to the appropriate department within UT System Administration.
