MNPS Procurement Department
Suppliers are critical contributors to the success of Metro Schools. Each year we receive thousands of responses to sourcing events. Successful suppliers are those who bring value to the families and students of Nashville.
Whether it’s providing a service, selling goods, or building our structures, MNPS depends on businesses and organizations to help us carry out the important work of delivering great public education to every student. MNPS offers many opportunities for businesses and organizations to collaborate with us.
Our department has two sections. The Sourcing and Contracts team conducts sourcing events (solicitations) through bids and proposals as well as identifying beneficial Cooperative Purchasing Agreements and Inter-local Agreements with other school districts and governmental entities. The Purchasing and Travel team processes departmental requests and issues purchase orders for goods, services, reservations, and travel.
