The PTAC, part of the South Carolina Small Business Development Center, helps businesses find and compete for government and military contracts. PTAC counselors are trained to assist clients in becoming prime contractors or subcontractors for the federal government, branches of the military, the state of South Carolina, as well as counties, cities, special districts, colleges and universities.
Doing business with the government doesn’t have to be daunting. PTAC counselors trained in the nuances of governmental contracting are available, free of charge, for one-on-one confidential counseling. They offer assistance with the steps necessary to do business with the government including:
Registrations (SAM, ORCA, GLS, MMO)
Certifications (HubZone, 8a, SDVOB, WOSB, DBE)
Looking for work (FedBizOpps, SCBO, subcontracting, bid-matching, simplified acquisitions under $25,000)
Marketing to the government (corporate profiles, small business specialists, site visits, networking strategies, procurement conferences)
Other procurement training (FAR, DIBBS, FPDS, IFBs, RFPs, GSA Schedules, RFID, SBIR, teaming agreements, NAICS, PSC, specs and standards, WAWF)
