Our Supplier Diversity Department was established to assist with Supplier Diversity Inclusion. By building and sustaining the Houston business community through effective inclusion initiatives, we help Historically Underutilized businesses (HUBs) minority, women, veteran, business enterprises (MWVBE) grow.
Throughout the years, we have established long lasting relationships with various minority commerce’s, programs, and licensing agencies in a conscious effort to assist and recruit diverse suppliers.
Why spend with Diverse Businesses?
Spend with such businesses results in:
Equity and inclusion for businesses often left out of the supplier base
Economic benefit for local socio-economic communities
Agile service providers with an eagerness to efficiently and accurately get products and services to us
Resiliency in the face of changing campus needs
Cultivation of sustainable partnerships with campus departments
Be a Part of Supplier Diversity's Internal Database
One Supplier Diversity goal for 2019 is to increase the utilization of our local HUB certified businesses within Lone Star College’s internal purchases. We encourage suppliers to fill outthe online Supplier Diversity vendor form so we can market your information internally.
HUB Subcontracting Plan Overview
When a vendor is awarded more than $50,000, they are required to submit a HUB Subcontracting Plan to Lone Star College. Minority businesses create jobs in minority communities and help build wealth among communities as a whole.
Situations requiring that a plan be developed:
Voters approved a $485 million bond in Nov. 2014.
Of the $485 million, $290 million will include building projects.
Lone Star College has developed a goal-oriented program to use certified HUB and small business.
We actively solicit such participation in conjunction with the $485 million 2014 Bond Program construction and supporting projects.
