Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC)
The Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) can help you market your products and services to federal, state, county, and municipal governments. These agencies purchase billions of dollars worth of goods and services each year. Yet, many small businesses don’t take advantage of these opportunities. Often they don’t know how to access government contracts. PTAC can help you compete in the bidding process and aid in finding and researching bids and contract opportunities.
