NWT PTAC provides one-on-one consulting to teach small businesses how do business with government agencies to include marketing their companies to government agencies, finding contracting opportunities, and preparing bids for government contracts.
Registration as a government contractor is mandatory in order to do business with some government agencies. NWT PTAC helps companies register as government contractors in systems such as the federal government’s System for Award Management (SAM) and the State of Texas’ Central Master Bidders List (CMBL).
Government agencies use different numbering systems to identify the products and services that they buy. NWT PTAC helps businesses find the applicable codes for their products and services in the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS), the Product and Service Codes (PSC) Manual, and the Texas NIGP Commodity Book.
NWT PTAC also conducts seminars on a variety of government contracting subjects ranging from basic contracting processes used by state and federal agencies to specific contracting programs and procedures.
NWT PTAC sends its clients a weekly Local Bid Sheet which lists government contracting opportunities that are currently available in its service area. NWT PTAC also provides an automated bid match service that sends clients bid opportunities tailored to meet their needs from federal, state and local government agencies across the country.
State and federal agencies have various regulations and laws that govern every step of their contracting activity. NWT PTAC can provide access to most of those regulations and laws so that contractors can understand and comply with the requirements in each contract they perform.
NWT PTAC helps identify potential government customers for businesses by performing marketing research to find out which agencies are currently purchasing their types of products and services.
NWT PTAC assists contractors in preparing contract offers by helping them understand the bidding process and insuring they understand all requirements included in a contract solicitation. NWT PTAC also helps contractors prepare contract offers for multiple award schedule contracts with the General Services Administration (GSA).
