In 1991 Texas instituted the HUB program to increase the opportunities available to businesses owned by minorities and women in the area of state procurement and contracting. In accordance with Title 34, Section 20.13 of the Texas Administrative Code, each state agency shall make a good faith effort to utilize HUBs in contracts for construction, services (including professional and consulting services) and commodities purchases. The Texas HUB program sets aspirational goals by procurement category and allows for HUB subcontracting plans for contracts above $100,000.  The statewide HUB Program facilitates the use of HUBs in state procurement and provides information on the state's procurement process to minority and woman- owned businesses.
