The North Carolina Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) educates business associates on how to obtain contracts by providing comprehensive assistance in selling products and services to local, state and federal government agencies. The PTAC is a business and technology extension program of the UNC System, administered by NC State University. In North Carolina, PTAC offices are co-located with SBTDC offices to provide comprehensive management counseling and education services to small to mid-size businesses. The PTAC has been assisting North Carolina businesses for over 30 years.
Our purpose is to generate employment and improve the general economic condition of the state by assisting North Carolina companies including those eligible for business development programs for local, state and federal government contracts. We provide procurement technical assistance by offering no-fee and confidential counseling on selling your products and/or services to the appropriate local, state or federal government agency.
