Full transparency in doing business with the City of Memphis.

June 8, 2010

At this morning’s meeting of the Small Business Chamber, I was pleased to announce the launch of MemphisTN.gov/business – a one-stop-shop of all contracts and purchase orders that are moving through Memphis city government.

During my campaign, I made a commitment to ensure we posted contracts and associated information online as a part of making government more transparent.  This is more than a significant part of our transparency agenda, however. This web interface will allow local business owners, particularly those unfamiliar with existing processes, the chance to review documents and information that can help guide them as they seek future procurement opportunities with the City of Memphis.

It’s not that these things weren’t available previously; it’s just that we have short circuited previous processes by bringing these resources and information together in one place while also abolishing the need for hundreds of different emails, phone calls, and public records requests.
