  1. The projects noted above are subject to change and do not constitute any guarantee that the referenced procurement may be issued; this list is intended to serve as an informational tool. Official solicitation notice will be posted on the HCC Procurement Operations Department website.
  2. Once a solicitation is advertised/posted/distributed, the Prohibited Communications "Blackout Period" and Political Contributions prohibition (as defined in the Board of Trustees Bylaws) goes into affect. Proposers considering responding to a current solicitation shall certify that they have read, understand, and agree to be bound by the Prohibited Communications/Political Contributions provision set forth in the solicitation document. Potential vendors, subcontractors, service providers, bidders, brokers, officers, lobbyists or consultants shall not make a political contribution to a Trustee or candidate during the prohibited communication period. Proposers further understands that they shall not communicate with a HCC Trustee, employee, or any member of the selection/evaluation committee in any way concerning a solicitation from the day it is first advertised through thirty (30) days after the contract is executed by the Chancellor or his/her designee, or when a determination is made that the solicitation will not be awarded.

    This period is known as the “Blackout Period”, as further defined in Section 1.7.10 and 3.3 of the Procurement Operations Manual. Violation of the Blackout Period is considered unethical conduct and will be handled as such with regard to all applicable federal and state laws, regulations, local ordinances, policies, and procurement procedures.

    With regard to a Proposer, violation of the Blackout Period may result in the cancellation of the referenced transaction, disbarment, disqualification from current and future procurement solicitations and prosecution in accordance with the Laws of the State of Texas.
