Historically underutilized businesses invited to register at procurement seminar

Tuesday, November 11, 2008

DALLAS – Historically underutilized businesses – those owned by women and minorities – will have the opportunity to register with the State of Texas at a free HUB vendor procurement seminar and expo at the University of North Texas Dallas Campus from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Nov. 14.

The seminar and expo, presented by the Office of Finance and Administration, will feature topics such as boosting business connections, writing and submitting proposals and becoming certified by the State of Texas as a HUB vendor. These vendors are placed on a Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) that allows procurement specialists easy access to company information when a bidding process begins.

"The UNT Dallas Campus wants to see more woman- and minority-owned businesses given the opportunity to bid on projects at the Campus and at the future UNT Dallas," said Maxine Rogers, director of finance and administration. "We are offering on-site application assistance with the State so we can help community businesses access the new market of UNT Dallas."

Representatives from the State Comptroller's Office will be at the event. Registration for the event is free and can be completed online at the UNT Dallas Campus website. For more information, call 972-780-3608 or e-mail
