Our policy is to provide all suppliers with the same information and to ensure that the bidding process is completely accessible. Though we do not "set aside" a specific amount of our business for any group or type of supplier, our policy is to provide assistance so that you can compete on a level playing field. We want to ensure that every company has a fair and open opportunity to receive Knox County contracts, regardless of your size, race, sex, religion, or ethnic origin.
Helping You Become Part of Our Team
To promote equal opportunity, we have set up a special program to help you do business with us. Through this program, we will assist you in learning how to qualify as a Knox County supplier or contractor, and how to participate in our competitive bid process. This brochure contains the basic information you will need in order to be considered for supplying us with your products or services. Our Supplier Diversity Coordinator will be happy to explain our program further, answer your questions, and refer you to the right Knox County Buyer for the product or service you offer.
