Client Feedback

The help I have received from PTAC is top notch! Without this agency I don’t think I would have been able to navigate through government contracting. With their help we secured our first contract last year and are looking at bidding many more this year.

We have been to a few of the PTAC trainings and they have helped us greatly in understanding how the contracting with the government works. Through the help of the Onaway office in Michigan we bid and was awarded our first federal contract with the DLA. PTAC was right there to answer any questions and even came on over to help us go through the contract requirements for our first contract. It was very confusing with all the requirements and we really appreciated the help of our PTAC representative. If it were not for PTAC, I don't believe we would have ever attempted to tackle all the paperwork that is required in the government contracts. We also would have probably given up on the HUBZone certification, but thanks to PTAC helping us in times of need, we completed the documentation successfully and are now HUBZone certified. Thanks PTAC of Northeast Michigan!

Thank you for all your help! PTAC has been of tremendous assistance in securing our first government contract! We continue to check your e-mail notification system for possible contracts of which apply to our line of business.
