Did you know that in 2012, the federal government acquired over $90 billion of goods and services from small businesses? How you can get your share of the pie is probably your next question. Before you begin the lengthy process of bidding for government projects, you’ll want to get all the information you can. Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs), located all over the country, offer many services at little or no cost to help you determine whether you’re eligible (or ready) to do business with Uncle Sam. Once you’re ready, your local PTAC will also help you register and research past contracts and small business set-aside opportunities.
