Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program

AISD promotes and strongly encourages the involvement and participation of Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs). AISD is committed to providing opportunities to small minority and women firms throughout the district in the Construction Management Bond Program for a diverse array of contractors and service providers. AISD conducted a community engagement process to develop a formal HUB program based on the Disparity Study the Board of Trustees accepted in February 2016.  The Board of Trustees adopted the formal HUB program in August 2016.  Phase one of this program was implemented for construction and related professional services on November 15, 2016. 

An expanded formal HUB Program for all District-wide procurements will be effective beginning September 01, 2018.

The new categories will be:

  1. Commodities (including supplies & equipment) and
  2. Non-Professional Services (including non-construction related Professional Services).

Please reference the revised CH & CV (LOCAL) policies below,  they were adopted by the Board of Trustees on June 18, 2018. Please contact the HUB main office at 512-414-3120 for any inquiries.
