About Us

The purpose of the Colorado PTAC is to provide consultation services to companies who aspire to enter or expand their business to government agencies.   The Colorado PTAC links agency acquisition needs to interested and able companies and guides these emerging companies throughout the entire acquisition process.

Our organization is a conduit to connect people serving a common purpose.

The outcomes of our success include small business growth, expanded supplier bases, community and industry connections, and a demonstrable positive economic impact.

The Procurement Technical Assistance Program (PTAP) was authorized by Congress in 1985 in an effort to expand the number of businesses capable of participating in the Government Marketplace. Administered by the Department of Defense, Defense Logistics Agency (DLA),* the program provides matching funds through cooperative agreements with state and local governments and non-profit organizations for the establishment of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) to provide procurement assistance.

Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs)  in different states and areas form a nationwide network of dedicated procurement professionals working to help local businesses compete successfully in the government marketplace.   While each individual PTAC generally provides similar services and programs, there is considerable variation in how each PTAC executes it’s program regionally.

The Colorado PTAC, established in 2009, is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation funded by DoD, State and local funds and in-kind support. The PTAC partners with government agencies, universities, economic development organizations, s and other business programs/institutions to deliver our services statewide.

The Colorado PTAC is staffed with highly experienced government contracting experts and provide a wide range of services.  The foundation of our support is our one-on-one counseling/mentoring, which we supplement through robust training, networking and educational events.
