PTAC Counselors provide contract assistance training at your site, or at one of our nine locations. This counseling can identify how to market to military and government, documentation preparation, financing alternatives, etc.
Procurement counselors provide individual counseling on all aspects of government contracting, including assistance in the initial stage of how to find the right match, how to market to the government, and how to request and prepare solicitation documents.
Counselors also provide information on other government programs including SBIR/STTR grants and government-guaranteed bank loans.
