Disadvantaged and Small Business Enterprise Programs – Texas Department of Transportation

by | Aug 29, 2022 | Business

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).

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.
