Services

PTAC staff are trained contracting specialists that will help you obtain the most current and relevant information available, provide insight into the research process and coach you through the government contracting process, from start to finish. To do this, we offer support and services in the areas listed below. Many of the services available through the PTACs of Michigan are free of charge. We encourage you to contact the PTAC office in your area to learn more about costs and the specific services offered.

ONE-ON-ONE COUNSELING

One of the PTACs’ most requested services, one-on-one business counseling, provides an opportunity to address specific client issues such as: applications and registrations, marketing strategies, bid preparation assistance, subcontracting opportunities, pre-award survey preparation, quality requirements, contract modifications, electronic commerce, and troubleshooting.

BID MATCHING

Locating government bid opportunities can be very time consuming. Electronic bid matching scans a variety of government agencies to provide a report specific to your company’s product or service. Bid Match provides a wide variety of government bid opportunities including those from the FedBizOpps database, DLA’s bulletin boards, various EDI systems, state and local agencies, and foreign entities. To ensure that you see only those bids you are interested in, we help you develop search profiles that contain keywords, Product Service Codes (PSC/FSCs), and National Stock Numbers (NSNs).

PROPOSAL PREPARATION & SUBMISSION

Your local PTAC is here to help you create a quality proposal that contains all the necessary information in the correct format. Government contracts and solicitations frequently refer to documents to explain rules and regulations that must be followed under the government contract at hand. Your local PTAC can connect you with the resources and documentation needed to effectively respond to contracts.

SEMINARS, TRAINING EVENTS & WORKSHOPS

The PTACs frequently host training sessions to assist local companies in learning more about specific government procurement topics. Our educational events are also an excellent way to connect with fellow local businesses. Visit your local PTAC’s website to learn more about upcoming events in your area.

GOVERNMENT REGISTRATIONS

Companies looking for assistance completing their System for Award Management (SAM) registration, State of Michigan Vendor Registration, or any other registration should contact their local PTAC for assistance.

SUBCONTRACTING ASSISTANCE

The Federal Government has a legislated policy that socio-economic goals need to be met for small business and specified classifications of small business:  disadvantaged, 8(a) certified, women owned, disadvantaged women owned, HUBZone, veteran owned, and service disabled veteran owned concerns. These small businesses shall have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate in the performance of Federal contracts. Federal contractors who receive contracts valued at $650,000 (or  $1,500,000 for construction) are required to carry out this policy in the awarding of subcontracts to the fullest extent consistent with the efficient performance of the contract. Your area PTAC can assist you in navigating through the subcontracting opportunities that are right for your business.

STATE OF MICHIGAN CONTRACTING ASSISTANCE

The Michigan DTMB-Purchasing Operations’ Contract Connect website provides information and educational services to businesses looking to contract with the State of Michigan. The Department manages the procurement of commodities, services, and information technology valued at $25,000 and above for all state agencies.
