How to do Business with the State of Tennessee

In order to do business with the State, a Supplier must be registered through Edison. A Supplier may review bid opportunities without completing the registration process but must complete the registration process to be awarded or receive notifications when there are new solicitations. Registration by category codes will result in receipt of e-mail notifications of solicitations/sourcing events that are publicly posted. For information regarding category codes review the Category Code List (UNSPSC) document listed under Job Aids, Forms and Instructions.  This page contains pertinent information for Suppliers interested in RFP Opportunites, Grantee Information, Protest Procedures, How to do Business with the State, TN State Agency, Bid Opportunities and the Edison Supplier Portal.
