Contract Compliance & Small Business Program

Registration For All Potential HCC Vendors

Thank you for your interest in doing business with Houston Community College. HCC Procurement Operations encourages and seeks the partnership of qualified suppliers to provide quality goods and services at competitive pricing to HCC.

HCC Procurement Operations is the coordinating office for buying within the System. Procurement Operations is authorized to issue bid invitations and proposals, authorize price changes, process purchase orders, and develop long-term partnerships.

HCC procures over $50 million in goods and services annually which provides many opportunities for the vendors within our community. HCC in its attempt to be a model for the culturally diverse community it serves, is committed to increasing the level of participation of small businesses.

HCC maintains a competitive bidding process in accordance with the Texas Education Code, and the policies and procedures mandated by the Board of Trustees. HCC has established a Small Business Development Program to stimulate the growth of local small businesses. We encourage small business participation in all phases of procurement activities by offering a full and fair opportunity to compete for all HCC contracts.

The HCC Small Business Development Program will provide better value in procurement efforts because it will foster competition and help avoid discrimination. It is designed to increase procurement activities for small businesses, underutilized businesses, and disadvantaged businesses.

Procurement Operations' goal is to promote the best interests of Houston Community College and the people it serves through intelligent action and fair dealing which will result in minimizing cost and obtaining the maximum projected value for each dollar of expenditure. Procurement Operations has the sole authority to negotiate for the purchase of supplies, equipment, and services. Houston Community College will not assume obligation or liabilities without prior approval of the Executive Director of Procurement.

HCC shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, and disability in the selection of vendors, and shall prohibit vendors from such discrimination in the selection of sub contactors and vendor's employees. HCC may immediately terminate or disqualify from future contracts any contractor who engages in such discriminatory practices.
