What is the Southeast Pennsylvania Procurement Technical Assistance Center?

The Southeast Pennsylvania Procurement Technical Assistance Center (SE PA PTAC) is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD). The PTAP program provides matching funds through cooperative agreements with the DoD and are part of a national program authorized by Congress in 1985 to expand the number of businesses capable of participating in the government marketplace. Our center is comprised of offices at 3 universities and the Philadelphia Navy Yard – Kutztown University (manages Navy Yard office), Lehigh University, and Widener University. Each office covers different counties (see the breakdown below).

PTACs are staffed with counselors experienced in government contracting, and all participate in ongoing professional training required to keep pace with continually evolving acquisition procedures and policies. Our counselors help businesses of all sizes market to the government – federal, state, and local.

Businesses that want to get into government contracting and need assistance can do no better than to talk to a PTAC – they are the go-to people for marketing your products or services to the government. PTAC counselors can teach you how to explore the government arena for possible market opportunities.

This procurement technical assistance center is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Department of Defense.
