June 16, 2022

KNOXVILLE -- Businesses interested in learning about procurement opportunities with the City of Knoxville are invited to attend the 13th annual Business Breakfast on Wednesday, June 22, 7:30-11:30 a.m. at Chilhowee Park in the Jacob Building.

Attendance is free, but pre-registration is requested.

“It is great to be able to come together, in-person, after several years of COVID-related changes,” said Pamela Cotham, Assistant Purchasing Agent and Small Business and Diversity Outreach Office manager.

“This is an invaluable event for area businesses, particularly small, women-owned, minority-owned, service disabled veteran-owned and businesses owned by persons with disabilities. This one morning can really help provide a better understanding of how to compete for contracts with the City of Knoxville.”

• Knoxville's Community Development Corporation (KCDC)
• The Public Building Authority (PBA)
• Knoxville Area Transit (KAT)
• And, The Knoxville Utilities Board (KUB)

Department directors and/or purchasing agents will be on hand to talk about specific projects planned for the next 12 to 18 months, the anticipated dates work will be going out for bid, and bidder qualifications.

The City of Knoxville has nearly $90 million in upcoming projects.
