PTAC Spotlight: Kansas PTAC Helped Small Businesses Land 800+ Contracts In FY2015
In fiscal year 2015 the Kansas PTAC helped Kansas small businesses obtain 810 contract awards worth over $73 million. These successes should come as no surprise, because the Kansas PTAC is staffed by highly-experienced procurement professionals, who have played key leadership roles in APTAC, the national PTAC organization. Kansas PTAC has recently sponsored successful industry day outreach events with Ft. Riley, Ft. Leavenworth, and the US Army Corps of Engineers. In addition our staff presents seminars on an ongoing basis including Competing for Government Contracts: Basic Training, Reading and Responding to a Proposal, and How to Stand Out In a Competitive Market With a Capabilities Statement.
