Procurement Inclusion Program (HUB)

Garland, Texas is the twelfth largest city in Texas, and with an annual municipal budget exceeding $600 million, Garland has an ongoing need for a diversified set of materials, equipment, supplies and services. The city's leadership is committed to the inclusion and utilization of Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB) across every level of city procurement.

To engage and develop HUB participation in Garland's procurement process, the purchasing department has established a Procurement Inclusion Program (PIP) with the following objectives:

  • Identify HUB suppliers through the State of Texas HUB database.
  • Provide HUB supplier education and awareness of Garland's purchasing procedures including electronic bidding.
  • Develop an Assistance Directory for suppliers.
  • Exceed state requirements for HUB supplier notification of bid opportunities.
