We provide financing and purchasing assistance to the entire Campus Planning and Facilities Management unit. We are staffed with 38 employees, and have an annual budget of more than $2 million. We are also dedicated to using the services and goods of historically underutilized businesses (HUBs), and we use these businesses nearly three times as often as the average State of Texas organization.
