The HUB Specialist can assist with understanding and filling out forms such as the HUB Subcontracting Plan and Determination Form, as well as interpret state rules and serve as a knowledgable expert on HUB compliance. The HUB Specialist also serves as liasion between HUB vendors and university departments. Click the link below to schedule a consultation appointment.

Centralized Master Bidders List

  • The CMBL is a comprehensive mailing list of vendors who are actively competing for state business
  • Effective tool for businesses to use to market their products and services to state agencies and
        institutions of higher education.
  • A business may be considered for the CMBL by completing an on-line application or printable
       **Fee for inclusion on the CMBL is $70.00 per year and can be paid by credit/debit card, or
          check debit.

Texas State University strongly recommends that businesses submitting a HUB application also apply

contract specialists when they are searching for vendors.

Mentor-Protégé Program

The Mentor-Protégé Program is designed to foster long-term relationships between prime contractors and Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBS). These relationships should culminate in an increase in the ability of HUBS to contract with the State of Texas or to receive subcontracts under a State contract. Participation in the program is voluntary for both Mentors and Protégé.
