How to Do Business with the TBR
To become a registered vendor/supplier for the Tennessee Board of Regents Central Office, please complete the online application and submit it electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org in the Purchasing and Contracts Department. Vendors are to complete the form in full; otherwise, the bidder application cannot be processed. Vendors must select at least one (1) commodity group to be eligible to receive notices of current bid opportunities. IF YOU HAVE BEEN DEBARRED BY ANY AGENCY, FEDERAL OR STATE, SO INDICATE. The TBR Purchasing and Contracts Department reserves the right to deny registration to any company and any entity denied registration will be so advised. Small, Minority, and Women-Owned Businesses should also contact the Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise to be officially certified by the State of Tennessee. http://tennessee.gov/businessopp/
Registration does not guarantee that all bidders will receive Requests for Quotations (RFQ)/ Requests for Proposals (RFP). It is the vendor’s responsibility to inquire regarding current bid opportunities. Vendors may contact the Purchasing and Contracts Department to obtain copies of a particular request. We encourage a competitive environment, and vendors are advised to contact the Purchasing and Contracts Office at 615-366-4436 or 615-366-3900 with any questions.
Please do not complete a vendor application if your interests are regarding construction/renovations and/or capital project procurements.
