The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) has completed the first Request for Information (RFI) market research discovery process with minority technology companies. The RFI followed CEBOT's vendor governance process and with a desire to support the HBCU Ecosystem.
CEBOT has completed research on the development of a regional opportunity fund with the intention to create multiple opportunity zone business joint ventures investments. The primary purpose of the joint ventures is to stimulate the economy through governance, infrastructure and innovation and public/private partnerships.
The minority technology companies that participated in the vendor governance interviews self selected into a research cohort and will be invited to participate in a contractor team arrangement that binds the minority technology industry to the HBCU ecosystem.
The SMART HBCU HUB federal contracting innovation is now in development with Norfolk State University's Cybersecurity Complex.

SMART HBCU HUB
Governing Innovation and Opportunity
Council Exchange Board of Trade
Over the last decade, higher education institutions have received over $123 billion in federal contract funding revenue, but less than 1% of that funding has gone to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other minority serving institutions (MSIs). The federal government is mandated to give at least 3% to HBCUs, but that goal has not been met.
On Monday, January 13 2020 the U.S. Treasury and General Services Administration’s official signing of the landmark agreement to increase HBCU funding in federal contracting.These federal contracting opportunities will allow HBCUs to be more engaged in a private sector model that will create jobs and spark innovations that will scale across the entire HBCU ecosystem.
Last year, the Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) in partnership with their minority technology company members and Norfolk State University Cybersecurity Complex (NSU Cybersecurity Complex), responded to a Request for Information (RFI) presented by the Office of Management and Budget and the GSA for Technology Based Management (TBM). It proposes the inclusion of over 100 minority technology companies with a GSA schedule.
This RFI was accepted by GSA and illuminates the importance of the Treasury Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) as NSU Cybersecurity Complex was included in Treasury's market research based on CEBOT's recommendation. This Use Case will be part of the May 27th, 2020 and June 11th, 2020 discussions to bring context to federal contracting and introduce how HBCUs and the minority technology industry can work together to build past performance and capabilities to win more federal contracts.
