The Purchasing Department places orders with HUB vendors whenever appropriate. University departments are also encouraged to procure through HUB vendors when utilizing the Small Purchases policy.

The HUB Business Directory is maintained by the Division of Purchase and Contract . These directories list HUB vendors alphabetically, by commodity number, and by construction industry number.
