Disadvantaged and Small Business Enterprise Programs

TxDOT makes it easy to find business opportunities and bid information for Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE), Small Business Enterprises (SBE) and Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB).

Texas Unified Certification Program directory

The Texas Unified Certification Program (TUCP) will help you locate certified DBEs needed for highway construction contracts in Texas. The TUCP consolidates all DBE firms certified by six different agencies into one centralized directory.

Centralized Master Bidders List & HUB search

The State of Texas offers many opportunities for vendors, including minority- and women-owned businesses. The Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) & HUB Search will help you locate certified HUBs.

DBE and HUB goals

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) Program participation goals are set on all federally funded projects to encourage contracting with DBE-certified small businesses. Contracting with DBE-certified firms on a project with a DBE participation goal will count as participation towards that goal. All prime contractors awarded a contract with a DBE participation goal are required to meet the goal or document evidence of good faith efforts. View the DBE goal methodology.

Different than DBE goals, Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program goals are implemented statewide, and there is an individual goal for each spending category that TxDOT must meet on a yearly basis: heavy construction, building construction, special trade construction contracts, professional services contracts, other services contracts, and commodities contracts. Any contracts or purchases with businesses actively certified as a HUB will count towards the goal for the appropriate spending category.
