Business Operations Division - Purchasing

Purchasing Office

The Purchasing division within Facilities Management, in conjunction with the UTHSCSA Purchasing Department, acts as the state agent for all FM purchases. This division is responsible for following all purchasing guidelines outlined in the UTHSCSA Handbook of Procedures as well as state, federal, and local requirements. The Purchasing division fully supports the Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) Program. The HUB Program serves as an advocate for minority- and women-owned businesses in their efforts to conduct business with the UTHSCSA. By definition, a HUB is a for-profit corporation with a minimum of 51% equity ownership by one or more Black, Hispanic, Asian Pacific, Native American or women who have proportionate interest and demonstrate active participation in the control, operation, and management of the entities' affairs in the partnership.


The University of Texas Heath Science Center is committed to actively seek HUBs for its construction projects as consultants, prime contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers. University employees are required to make a good faith effort to purchase from a HUB vendor whenever possible. The intent of the HUB program is to educate contractors, subcontractors and vendors on "how to do business" with the university as well as to provide support and encourage participation.
