Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB)
It is our policy to
seek economic parity for HUB Owners by establishing a program which ensures
involvement by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts certified
Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) in all phases of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department
's (TJJD) procurement practices. TJJD will provide equal
opportunities for HUB's to compete for local spot purchases, construction
contracts, provision of professional services, acquisition of temporary
services, purchases for equipment, supplies and services required by TJJD.
Each ordering division of the TJJD is responsible for participating in
the identification of certified HUBs from the Texas Comptroller's Bid List when obtaining
bids in order to reach the agency's goals.
TJJD is committed to
the highest ethical standards in carrying out all purchasing activities.
We are determined to spend money wisely to purchase the best products
and services available.
TJJD's purchasing practices
are guided by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts rules and regulations as
described in Texas Government Code, Title 10, Subtitle D, Chapters 2151
through 2176. The TJJD Business Services Division acts as the central agent
to increase HUB participation in the procurement process. Responsibility
for achieving the program's objectives is delegated to other pertinent
Division Directors, Service Areas and Institutions. HUB participation
will be increase:
- By participating
in cooperative multi-agency efforts in vendor education and HUB recruitment;
- By increasing
the amount of business solicited from certified HUBs.
