Procurement Technical Assistance Center
To help Montana companies successfully sell their products and services to federal, state, and local governments, TechLink manages a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). This center is a partnership between MSU’s Office of Research and Economic Development and the Big Sky Economic Development Authority. It is part of a nationwide PTAC system that receives major funding from the Defense Logistics Agency.
The TechLink PTAC works with small businesses in Gallatin, Park, Madison, Broadwater, and Lewis and Clark counties, providing expert advice on how to identify government contracting opportunities and successfully navigate the complexities of government procurement.
TechLink’s PTAC currently has 280 active client companies. Clients range from high-tech
firms to “mom and pop” service providers. In fiscal year 2017, these PTAC-assisted
companies secured 686 government contracts with a total value of $19.5 million.
