Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) Counselors work with businesses on an array of topics in relation to government contracting and subcontracting. From the simple to the complex, our members need to be prepared to guide their clients through the long and winding road, anticipating the speed bumps and red tape along the way. Our Training Conferences are a time to increase our skills.

APTAC’s Fall 2018 learning event seeks to explore the latest trends in public acquisition, and deliver the insights that PTAC counselors need to best advise their clients for success in the Government contracting arena.
