The attached HUB Subcontracting Plan form must be completed and returned by bidders with the bid or the bid will be considered NON-RESPONSIVE and bid will be disqualified.

HUB Subcontracting Plan (HSP) Procedures

1) The University shall determine if there are probable subcontracting opportunities. “Subcontract” means a written third party contract between a prime contractor/vendor and another contractor for the performance of all or part of the contract being received from the State. If subcontracting opportunities are probable, University will state such probability in its bids, proposals, offers, or other applicable expression of interest and require the submission of a HSP. See # 3 below for more details. The HSP when accepted, will be a provision of the contract. The University will identify the potential subcontracting opportunities and bidders may obtain a list of vendors from the TBPC







http://www.gsc.state.tx.us/cmbl/cmblhub.html) that may be capable of performing the contract opportunities. The list provided is for information only and University does not endorse, recommend nor attest to the capabilities of any company or individual listed. A complete list of all TBPC certified HUBs may be electronically accessed through the Internet web site listed above. Although there are alternative means to connect to or reach this data, one method is by using an Internet web browser (like Netscape, Mosaic, etc.). When using a web browser, please connect to http://www.gsc.state.tx.us. 2) In order to demonstrate good faith effort to fulfill a HSP, the participating prime contractor must notify HUBs of the work that the contractor intends to subcontract. The preferable method of notice shall be in writing. The notice shall, in all instances, include a quantitative description of the subcontracting opportunities and identify a location or means to review contract specifications. The notice must be provided to potential subcontractors prior to submission of the contractor’s bid. The prime contractor shall provide potential subcontractors a reasonable period of time to respond to the contractor’s notice. “Reasonable time” in this context is no less than five working days from receipt of the notice to respond unless circumstances require a different time period which is to be determined by University and documented in the project file. Should a HUB not be selected as a subcontractor, see Form HUB-S - Part 2, at the web site http://www.utsystem.edu/bpm/58appendix2.htm. 3) If subcontracting opportunities are probable, a HSP is required as part of your bids, proposals, offers, or other applicable expression of interest. The bid shall be rejected as a material failure to comply with the advertised specifications if the bid documents do not contain the required information listed on the HSP form. If you are not subcontracting any portion of the contract, the HSP form must still be filled out and submitted with the bid. 4) No changes shall be made to an accepted subcontracting plan prior to its
