Last year, PTAC helped Utah businesses land more than $450 million in government contracts.
Government contracts are a two-sided opportunity: They create growth within a particular market and can provide a substantial revenue boost, but government contracting can be complex and involve a maze of procedures and paperwork that may discourage small business participation.
The good news is that Utah’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) helps Utah small businesses successfully compete in the government marketplace.
PTAC can help your business with all levels of government contracting (federal, state, local). PTAC offers one-on-one and group instruction to help companies identify the right opportunity and the right approach. With eight offices state-wide, PTAC is available to Utah small businesses, both urban and rural.
Just like any business arena, there are nuances to government contracting. For example, in order to do business with the federal government a business must obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number which is required in order to register as a federal contractor, vendor or supplier on the federal government’s System for Award Management site SAM.gov. Once a business is active in SAM, you will be visible to federal procurement agencies and large prime contractors and eligible for contracting and subcontracting opportunities. PTAC can also provide insight and contact information for state and local procurement opportunities within the state of Utah.
Please contact PTAC to get the technical assistance you need.
