Procurement Assistance & Outreach

Government or public sector contracting

Many businesses consider the idea of selling their services and/or products to the government much too complicated and overwhelming. In today’s marketplace, the government could become your best customer. The Nevada PTAC, POP* helps simplify the process and cut through the red tape, connecting Nevada businesses with lucrative opportunities through:

  • Education on government contracting via workshops, webinars (sponsored or co-sponsored) and one-on-one discussions of a specific or general nature.
  • Marketing your firm, whether you’re a manufacturer, distributor, service provider or construction contractor; brainstorming for specific targets and mechanics of how the purchases are executed; providing bid information; and proactively connecting our clients with buying offices and prime contractors.
  • Procurement Technical Assistance to include working with clients on quotes, bids, proposals, pre-award/post-award situations and compliance issues.
  • Support Documentation to include forms, mil specs/mil standards, inspection and quality control, procurement history, clauses, regulations, etc.
  • E-Commerce links to support exchange of information through individual purchasing offices, downloads, announcements, etc. A daily bid download and other information are also provided directly to your e-mail.
  • Networking Assistance to enhance visibility for business prospects, encourage teaming arrangement opportunities and identify other resources to pursue specific programs such as set-asides, etc.

*This procurement technical assistance center is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency.
