Are there specific bidding requirements?

Yes. Bidding requirements are defined in TCA § 62-6-119, which states the contractor must list their name as licensed, license ID#, classification, expiration date, and list the same information for their electrical, plumbing, mechanical or HVAC subcontractors, if those portions exceed $25,000. For geothermal, must list their Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) license information.  In addition, effective July 1, 2010, masonry subcontractors must be listed for portions $100,000 or more (including materials and labor). See "Bidding" on the website or you may review the law from our Web site under Laws, Rules and Regulations.  Effective January 1, 2014, roofing subcontractors must be licensed to perform work.  Roofing acceptable classifications include:  BC; or BC-A (for residential roofs), BC-B (commercial roofs), or BC-C (industrial roofs); or BC-21 (Roofing, Gutters and Vinyl Siding); or BC-12 (Roof Decks).

The contractor must have a classification that covers 60% of the project in order to bid.  If they do not, but have a commercial classification, they may bid but could not perform any of the work in excess of $25,000.  These portions would need to be subcontracted to a properly licensed contractor.  See "Classification Outline" on the website for more information.
