Vendor Information

Vendor Registration

We appreciate your interest in partnering with Cleveland State Community College (CLSCC).  Vendors should register as a vendor/supplier to do business with the College. The vendor application form with commodity listing and W-9 form should be completed and submitted to the Purchasing and Contracts Department to register. Although registration is important in doing business with CLSCC, it does not guarantee that you will receive bids/request for proposals.  We ask that you visit the "Bid Opportunities" link on this website to view current bid opportunities and/or contact the Purchasing and Contracts Department after you have submitted your application to become familiar with the personnel that generally process the commodities that you wish to quote. 

Documents

Authorized Signatures

No employee of the College has authority to make any purchase commitment, enter into any contract for materials or supplies, or otherwise take action with any third parties which may be constructed as financially binding to the College except through the Purchasing and Contracts Department, unless specifically authorized in writing by the President.  The Purchasing and Contracts Department will receive bids, issue purchase orders and enter into negotiations with suppliers.

Taxes

Cleveland State Community College is TAX EXEMPT from both State of Tennessee and Federal Tax.   A Certificate of Exemption may be completed upon request of the vendor. Contact Wilma Ownby wownby@clevelandstatecc.edu in Accounts Payable to receive a copy of the CLSCC Certificate of Exemption.

 

We strive for fair and open procurement.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding the purchasing process that you participate in, please contact the Purchasing and Contracts Department at 423-614-8701.
