Centralized Master Bidders List
For all purchases totaling $15,000 or more, it is required to solicit a minimum of two HUB vendors. A very useful tool for locating HUB vendors is the Texas Centralized Master Bidders List, which is maintained by the state of Texas and is comprised of a mailing list of vendors who are actively competing for state business opportunities. It categorizes vendors using specific commodity/service codes that describe the commodities/services sold and the state highway districts in which they choose to do business.
Any purchase $100,000 or greater requires completion of a HUB Determination Form to determine probability of subcontracting opportunities. If Subcontracting Opportunities are found to be probable, completion of a HSP Plan is required.
