Request for Proposals (RFP) Opportunities


Tennessee buys myriad personal, professional, and consulting services which are used within state government to most efficiently meet the varied demands for high quality public service.  Typically, contractors delivering such services are selected through the Request for Proposals (RFPs) process or some other appropriate means and are paid on a "fee-for-service" basis.

Tennessee also uses grant awards to achieve many of its objectives and programmatic responsibilities.  Grants are simply types of contracts that are used to affect an award of funding or property to a grant recipient or "grantee."  A grant benefits the general public or some population of the general public, and deliverables pursuant to a grant contract are comprised of professional services provided to third-party beneficiaries rather than service provided to the state.

The State of Tennessee contracts for personal, professional, and consulting services directly through its various departments and agencies. Individuals, businesses, and other service providers who wish to provide personal, professional, and consulting services to the State of Tennessee are encouraged to frequently visit the State of Tennessee Request for Proposals web page to review recent solicitations and other professional service procurement related notices.
