The Board ensured that its contractors submitted HUB subcontracting plans (HSPs) for all seven contract solicitation responses tested.
Specifically, the contractors submitted fully completed HSPs timely, and, when applicable, their identified HUB subcontractors were certified
at the time of submission. Additionally, the Board ensured that for the four contracts that resulted from the seven solicitation responses
tested, the HSP was included as part of the contract, as required by Texas Government Code, Section 2161.253.
However, the Board did not monitor HSPs in accordance with requirements. Specifically, the Board did not obtain monthly Progress
Assessment Reports for the two contracts in which HUB subcontractors were identified in the HSP. The Board was able to provide certain
invoices with information about subcontractor payments for one contract in the sample, but the information was not in the required Progress
Assessment Report format, which was developed by the Comptroller’s Office. Title 34, Texas Administrative Code, Section 20.285, requires a
monthly report in the format developed by the Comptroller’s Office as a condition for payment by the contracting state agency.
