The Knox County Housing Authority encourages participation of Minority Owned Business Enterprises (MBE), Women’s Business Enterprises (WBE), Small Business Enterprises (SBE) in its procurement opportunities.

When we are in the market for goods or services, we'll posit it on our website, our Facebook page, and in some cases run an advertisement in the local paper.
Purchasing done below the $10,000 level, this is done without a formal solicitation process. We call around, check prices, and select a reasonable and reliable provider.
Most of our spending falls into this category, which includes purchases between $10,000 and $100,000. We generally run solicitations for purchasing at this level.
Any projects over $100,000 are mainly solicited through a sealed-bid process. The lowest, most responsible and responsive bidders are awarded contracts.
Certain contracts require a special skill set - architecture and engineering, accounting, and consulting to name a few. With these contracts, we'll gauge your knowledge first and negotiate cost later.
