Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC)

Where businesses, opportunity, and government connect.                                             

For companies with an interest in selling to the government, Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is the place to begin. VT PTAC provides the in-depth understanding of complex documentation and product specifications that most businesses lack. By proactively searching for appropriate opportunities for each business’s needs, VT PTAC makes itself an indispensable partner in government procurement. 

At VT PTAC, we take the time to understand you and your business. The more we know about what makes you distinct, the more we can achieve with you. We match businesses with relevant contact opportunities, target a list of buyers and deliver access to critical research and development products. VT PTAC has the technical knowledge to support your business through registrations and certifications. Our understanding of the solicitation process enables you to bid on government contracts effectively and efficiently.

Through every phase of your government contracting experience, VT PTAC is an aid and an asset.

Our Mission

Our mission is to increase the percentage of federal contracts awarded to Vermont businesses, particularly contracts awarded to small businesses. Federal spending flows to Vermont businesses through both direct contract recipients and through their subcontractors.

Become a Client

If you are like most businesses, finding the time, staff or knowledge necessary to successfully market your products or services to the government is a challenge. VT PTAC makes it easier.

To be eligible to work with VT PTAC, you must:

  • Have the potential to sell to the government.
  • Be a business physically located in Vermont.

Are there any goods or services that the government does not purchase?

The government buys virtually everything, but there are some limitations. If you have questions about your product or service and whether there is a market, please call us today (802) 828-5237.
