The Government Buys Almost Everything!   

Selling to the government can be a profitable venture. Each year the federal government purchases more than $200 billion worth of goods and services. State and municipal governments spend an additional $20 billion. The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is powerful because it connects small business with the federal government.

The Procurement Technical Assistance Center can guide you through the government procurement process and provide you with information on how to become more competitive in the government marketplace.  We can help you determine if your company is ready for government opportunities and how to best position yourself to succeed.

Whether you are new to government contracting or you have sought contracts in the past, PTAC can help you! Bidding on government contracts is a time-consuming, yet worthwhile process. PTAC is here to guide you through the process and give you information and referral on how to be more competitive. Our services are free, confidential and easy to access.

The Defense Logistics Agency, part of the Department of Defense, funds PTAC to increase the number of vendors capable of performing on government contracts. Click on image below to watch a short video on the PTAC program (4:49 mins).
