Procurement Technical Assistance Center

Procurement Technical Assistance Center

About

With funding from the U.S. Department of Defense and the Massachusetts Department of Business and Technology, through the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Isenberg School of Management, the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) was established in November 1999.

Many forms of service are provided to PTAC clients. The most valuable of these services is one-on-one counseling, both during the proposal process and the subsequent contract period. When a client talks to a PTAC specialist, he/she is talking to a member of one of the strongest PTACs in the nation. The Massachusetts PTAC specialists have over 150 years of combined experience, both as government buyers and industry sellers.

Counseling sessions can involve discussing a client’s issues or problems, researching potential solutions, and conveying those solutions back to the client. Through a combination of research and team brainstorming, PTAC specialists work to provide the most accurate and comprehensive information to all their clients. PTAC also can supply technical information, such as specifications and standards (MIL-SPEC or MIL-STD) and pricing history. Pricing histories are available on any federally procured item with a National Stock Number or NSN (a number assigned to stock listed items of the Federal Government). Using past pricing helps clients gauge their competitiveness. Another valuable service is the bid match — a compilation taken from various bid notice sources, including the Commerce Business Daily, a vast number of government agency electronic bid boards, teasers: electronic-response-only bid notices, and state and municipal listings.

It is our sincere hope that we may assist more clients in joining the growing number of Massachusetts businesses that are receiving government contracts. For those who are already receiving government contracts, it is our hope to help these firms increase their government market share.
