The Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTAC) help Ohio's businesses seeking to compete for federal, state, and local government contracts. The program is part of a nationwide network of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers created by the U.S. Department of Defense. In Ohio, the Ohio Development Services Agency hosts the program which is supported by a number of community-based organizations serving local businesses.

The Procurement Technical Assistance Centers provide a variety of services that include bid preparation assistance, bid-matching services, military specifications, one-on-one training, product and procurement histories, help with information resources, and trade events where Ohio firms can meet government buyers. These services are provided at no cost to Ohio businesses.

Procurement Technical Assistance Centers are located throughout Ohio in the following cities: Athens, Cincinnati, Columbus, Dayton, Kirtland, and Toledo. Additional full service centers are located in Youngstown and South Point.

The Procurement Technical Assistance Centers are funded in part through a cooperative agreement from the Department of Defense (DOD) through a program administered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The content of any written materials or verbal communications of the PTAC does not necessarily reflect the official views of or imply endorsement by DOD or DLA.
