The Procurement Technical Assistance Center's (PTAC) mission is to maximize the number of capable U.S. companies participating in the government marketplace. Through no-cost counseling sessions and/or training workshops, we guide companies through the entire process of applying for and fulfilling government contracts, from helping you determine what kind of products and services the government needs, to registration, bidding and more.
PTAC hosts several training sessions and seminars throughout the year to provide the practical, hands-on information you need to do business with the government. Please visit www.washingtonptac.org/events for a current schedule.
