Since our federal government is the largest single customer in the world, purchasing 500 billion dollars worth of goods and services every year, every business should consider doing business with government agencies. PTAC can offer help in every aspect of the government contracting process, from just getting started to post-award assistance. We can help the novice in government contracting as well as the more experienced contractors.

Our MISSION is to provide education, training, and consultation services as needed depending on the experience of the business. Our GOAL is to maximize the value of government contract awards coming to Ohio. . . Which means your success is our success!

The majority of Government agencies now use a paperless procurement system. NEO-PTAC provides services to give small businesses the tools and training required to successfully compete in the federal and state market place. NEO-PTAC services are currently offered at no cost.
