Vendor Registration

We appreciate your interest in partnering with Cleveland State Community College (CLSCC).  The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) has a new way of managing and maintaining information from its current suppliers and suppliers that wish to register to do business with the TBR System Office and/or PDF icon TBR Institutions. There is now one (1) portal in which suppliers maintain and update its information accordingly and alleviates the need to register with each individual TBR Institution.

Registration does not guarantee that all bidders will receive Requests for Quotations (RFQ)/ Requests for Proposals (RFP). It is the vendor’s responsibility to inquire regarding current bid opportunities. Vendors may contact the Purchasing and Contracts Department to obtain copies of a particular request. We encourage a competitive environment, and vendors are advised to contact the Purchasing and Contracts Office, Vendor Management Analyst at 615-365-1555Telephone icon with any questions.  Small, minority, and women-owned businesses should also contact the Governor’s Office of Diversity Business Enterprise to be officially certified by the State of Tennessee.  TBR will be glad to assist in this certification process.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN DEBARRED BY ANY AGENCY, FEDERAL OR STATE, SO INDICATE. The TBR Purchasing and Contracts Department reserves the right to deny registration to any company and any entity denied registration will be so advised. 

Please visit the  Supplier Registration  link to begin the registration process.
