Since that time NC PTAC counselors have developed an excellent working relationship with the company and their energetic and innovative managers. They have assisted the company with a broad range of contracting issues, including GSA Schedules award, modifications to add new, cutting edge technologies to contracts, and a variety of other contract administration issues. The company has also participated in PTAC training programs. UAD has received numerous contracts and orders since 2011 from very satisfied customers. They have recently updated their GSA Advantage listing and continue to provide the latest technologies. UAD will continue their collaboration with PTAC as they look for other opportunities to increase both government contracting and commercial sales.
