Procurement Technical Assistance Center

The Missouri Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is a statewide, cooperative effort of University of Missouri Extension and the Department of Defense. Missouri PTAC is a member of the nationwide Procurement Technical Assistance Network. The mission of the Missouri PTAC is to help small businesses deal with regulations and red tape associated with selling to government organizations. Such obstacles often keep highly qualified suppliers from selling to federal, state, and local government organizations. The Missouri PTAC assists businesses — including small, disadvantaged, and women-owned firms — in obtaining federal, state, and local government contracts. Our procurement specialists help clients identify opportunities and understand the contracting process so they can take advantage of government sales dollars.
