PTAC's 2020 Progress

Since March 2020, the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) has innovated our programs to serve our customers with no delivery or quality gaps.

We have moved all of services (one-on-one counseling and conferences) online. One of the benefits to offering our procurement assistance service on line is the ability to reach more small businesses in Tennessee. Our clients no longer have to make the difficult decision between receiving technical assistance and serving their customers during the pandemic.

See our statistics below comparing our recent past quarter to the same period in the prior year:

According to PTAC Program Manager, Paul Middlebrooks, “PTAC is proud to say that we stayed committed to providing world-class training and counseling to our clients during the pandemic. Our success is contributed to the fact that we were not afraid to embrace innovation.”

We are excited to announce our next virtual conference, Construction Opportunities Conference, will take place on October 28th at 9 AM CST. In our third year, the Construction Opportunities Conference enables attendees to meet face to face with large prime contractors and government agencies interested in doing business with small construction and engineering firms.
