State of Texas HUB Certification

An Added Benefit – State of Texas HUB Certification

Within 30 days of your original certification by the SMSDC, your company’s basic contact information and description of services provided will be submitted to the Statewide Procurement Division (SPD) of the State of Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts Office. Upon approval from the State of Texas, your company will receive the Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) designation. As long as your SMSDC certification is maintained and current, your certification with the State of Texas will be current.

Your HUB certification will expire within the same time period as your SMSDC certification, or one year. Renewal of your HUB certification will be completed once the renewal of your SMSDC MBE certification is completed.  You must renew the MBE certification in order to renew the HUB certification.  Only certified HUBs are listed in the online Texas HUB Directory. State agencies use the HUB Directory to solicit bids from certified HUBs for state purchasing and public works contracts. Prime contractors also use the HUB Directory to identify HUBs for their subcontracting opportunities.
