COVID-19 Response - Bids and Propsoals
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Knoxville is currently allowing for online submissions of bids and proposals. Also, to avoid the need for vendors to attend in person, the City will broadcast all pre-bids and pre-proposals via Zoom and will broadcast bid openings via Zoom. Please ensure you read the requirements in each bid/proposal for instructions. Should you need assistance, please contact our office at (865) 215-2070. Thank you for your assistance as we work to make accommodations.

Across all departments, the City of Knoxville spends more than $78 million each year on an array of goods and services that include everything from architectural and engineering services to pest control, and from automotive parts to liquid soap. Of these expenditures, all purchases over $5,000 are handled by buyers in the Purchasing Division who are committed to maintaining the highest level of open, free market competition while at the same time actively encouraging local small business participation.
