Procurement Planning and HUB Subcontracting Determination

In accordance with Texas Government Code, §2161.252, when a procurement has an estimated value of $100,000 or more, a HUB Subcontracting Determination must be made.

Open enrollments and Request for Applications (RFAs) are not considered procurements and are excluded from HUB applicability.  Open enrollments are not a procurement under state law and the Federal Grant Act distinguishes Procurement Contracts (competitive bidding) from Assistance (i.e., grants and cooperative agreements). If the state/federal grant includes specific small business requirements, then contract staff or the program area is responsible for informing the DFPS HUB Coordinator to ensure DFPS compliance.

To accomplish this, the DFPS HUB Coordinator will participate in the procurement kick-off meeting to lead discussions on:

  • Potential Subcontracting Opportunities.
  • HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) Requirements.
  • Coordination of HSP training within a Vendor Conference or as a separate presentation to assist interested respondents.
