Federal, state, and local governments already purchase billions of dollars on goods and services every year. Federal purchasing offices are often required to set aside contracts or portions of contracts for exclusive bidding by small and/or minority-owned businesses. In addition, major prime contractors are required to subcontract part of their work out to small firms.

Our counselors help businesses of all sizes market to the government - federal, state, and local.
 
Businesses that want to get into government contracting and need assistance can do no better than to talk to a PTAC - they are the go-to people for marketing your products or services to the government. PTAC counselors can teach you how to explore the government arena for possible market opportunities.
