Building Business Relationships with Government Agencies
This video series is designed for companies that are new to doing business with local and state government agencies – it is not specifically about doing business with UT. The series is a collaborative effort of The City of Knoxville, Knox County, and The University of Tennessee. Our appreciation to Mr. Samuel Cowell for slide creation.
