Overview

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.

For Whom

PTACs match local businesses with contract opportunities, research past contracts, help clients prepare bids and navigate requirements and assist clients after winning contracts. Eight PTACs, covering their own regions within the state, offer free consulting on the contracting process.

Benefits

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.
