Across all departments, the City of Knoxville spends more than $78 million each year on an array of goods and services that include everything from architectural and engineering services to pest control, and from automotive parts to liquid soap. Of these expenditures, all purchases over $5,000 are handled by buyers in the Purchasing Division who are committed to maintaining the highest level of open, free market competition while at the same time actively encouraging local small business participation.
