About Us


The Public Building Authority of Knox County the City of Knoxville (PBA) performs three distinct functions for both the City and County: management of construction projects, management of facilities and grounds, and management of telephone systems. In the case of telephone system management, PBA also manages the phone system for the Knox County School District.

PBA acts as a consolidated department of the City and County within its operating responsibilities. This saves the City and County tax payers money, in that the City and County no longer need to have the expertise in the three functional areas PBA manages but share the costs of that expertise via PBA.
