HUB & Federal Small Business Program

Program Overview

The HUB & Federal Small Business Program of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center was established to identify Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUBs) and small business concerns (veterans, service-disabled veterans, woman-owned, Alaskan Native, HUB Zone, small disadvantaged businesses and small businesses) and encourage them to participate in the competitive bid process with the objective of increasing the number of contracts awarded to said vendors.

The information on this website has been prepared to familiarize you with our program and staff. We believe this information will help you better understand our organization and provide you with the information necessary to make your business transactions with us successful.

Commitment

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center's HUB & Federal Small Business Program is committed to the fair and equal treatment of all vendors. It is the policy of MD Anderson to involve solicitations from HUBs and small business concerns in our efforts to award contracts to those businesses.

The HUB & Federal Small Business Program is committed to expanding the business opportunities available at MD Anderson for American minority and woman-owned business enterprises in order to promote the successful development of growing businesses, to have a positive impact on improving our local economy and to give back to our community such support as is common to our mission.
