How the HUB area can help the departments:
Please contact the UNT System HUB Area for assistance with finding a qualified HUB vendor or for help in getting HUB certified.
A complete list of all certified Texas HUB vendors can be electronically accessed through the CMBL - Centralized Master Bidders List. The state of Texas maintains the CMBL in which all registered vendors for the State of Texas and certified Texas HUBs are listed. You may search the CMBL by commodity class and item codes to find which Certified Texas HUBs provide certain commodities/services (see below.)
The Texas Procurement And Support Services (TPASS) Commodity Book is used by vendors and state agency personnel.
Agencies use the class-item numbering and descriptions found in the book to properly code products or services on their requisitions and purchases, so informal and formal invitations for bid will reach vendors that have indicated they are capable of furnishing the required materials, equipment, supplies and services.
This organization of commodities by class and item numbers (codes) provides a searchable means of locating vendors by the commodities/services that they offer. Each "class" is broken down into more detailed commodities by "item." The TPASS Commodity Book is viewable online.
