Selling to the Government

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.

Client Perspectives

I have been using some of the tools and helpful information PTAC provided and have almost doubled our federal business sales from last year.

We would never have been awarded our first government contract had it not been for the assistance we got from PTAC.

Just knowing that we had someone knowledgeable in federal procurement to guide us as needed gave us peace of mind.
Raleigh, NC

My counselor deftly guided me through the various applications and certification processes to make me eligible to bid on government contracts. I now have a big new pool of viable job opportunities to pursue, and a much brighter attitude.
