Consulting Firm Cognitive Technologies Awarded Texas HUB Certification

ognitive Technologies - a consulting firm specializing in project management, collaborative processes, and organizational effectiveness for federal and state government and Fortune 1000 companies - has been certified as a Texas Historically Underutilized Business (HUB).

"We`re very pleased to be certified as a Texas HUB in addition to our recent certification as a WBE/DBE," said Dr. Karen McGraw, CEO and founder of Cognitive Technologies. "The economy has given government agencies and large enterprises a challenge: improve your technology and organizational effectiveness more than ever, but do it in less time and with fewer resources. Cognitive Technologies can help you make it work, and our new status as a Texas HUB makes us an even easier choice."

A HUB is at least 51 percent owned by an Asian Pacific American, Black American, Hispanic American, Native American and/or American woman, is an entity with its principal place of business in Texas, and has an owner residing in Texas with a proportionate interest that actively participates in the control, operations and management of the entity`s affairs. The statewide program facilitates the use of HUBs in state procurement and provides information on the state`s procurement process to minority- and women-owned businesses.

"We acknowledge and applaud Texas` intent to provide additional procurement support to small women- and minority-owned businesses that traditionally have a more difficult time competing for state procurements," said Dr. McGraw. "We look forward to participating in the HUB program and providing our expertise in projects, people and technology to Texas agencies and their programs."
