HSP Determination of HUB Probability Managed by HUB Coordinators State Agencies shall use the following steps to determine if subcontracting opportunities are probable under the contract with an expected value of $100,000 or more: Review HUB Annual Procurement Utilization Goals; Research Centralized Master Bidders List, HUB Directory, Internet and other directories identified by the Commission for HUBS that may be available to perform the contract work; Contact other state and local agencies and institutions of higher education to obtain information regarding similar contracting and subcontracting opportunities; and, Review history of similar agency purchasing transactions. Once a determination has been made by the HHSC Coordinator/Administrator, the determination is documented, with the appropriate form, in the procurement file
Inclusion of the HSP Managed by HUB Coordinators The HUB Participation Section (Section 4) of the solicitation instrument will be updated with the appropriate language, which will also include potential subcontracting opportunities related to the procurement as identified by HHSC Contract over $100,000 + Subcontracting = HUB Subcontracting Plan
Development and Submission of the HSP The HUB subcontracting plan shall be submitted at the same time as the response (bid, proposal, offer, or other applicable expression of interest), except for construction contracts involving alternative delivery methods. Responses that do not include a completed HUB Subcontracting plan will be rejected due to material failure to comply with advertised specifications in accordance with Subsection 113.6(a) of Title 34 relating to Bid Evaluation and Award, or Section relating to Development and Submission of the HSP. Managed by Respondents
HSP Evaluation and Findings Managed by HUB Coordinators The HUB subcontracting plan shall be reviewed and evaluated prior to contract award and, if accepted, shall become a provision of the agencys contract. Revisions necessary to clarify and enhance information submitted in the original HUB subcontracting plan may be made in an effort to determine good faith effort. State agencies shall review the documentation submitted by the respondent to determine if a good faith effort has been made in accordance with Title 34. If HHSC determines that a submitted HUB subcontracting was not developed in good faith, HHSC will determine a material failure to comply with advertised specifications and the subject response (bid, proposal, offer) shall be rejected. The reasons for rejection shall be recorded in the procurement file. HHSC HUB Coordinator/Administrator will document its finding and determination for compliance which will be sent to the project manager for inclusion in the procurement/contract file (copy to HUB Program Office).
Vendor Conference Managed by HUB Coordinators A Vendor Conference is always encouraged to highlight the HUB Requirement for the development and submission of the HSP, and any new requirements related to the procurement/contract.
