The SBDC Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) assists Alabama small businesses interested in obtaining contracts with the Department of Defense, other federal agencies and state/local government agencies and participating prime contractors. Its mission is to strengthen Alabama’s economy by stimulating job creation, growth, and business retention. To accomplish this goal, the PTAC offers free business advising services to businesses seeking to obtain federal, state, and local government contracts.
