Your Government Contracting Experts
The Northeast Michigan Consortium Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) is a not-for-profit organization that teaches businesses in northeast Michigan how to sell their products and services to federal, state, and local government agencies.


Our mission is to enhance national defense and economic development in the State of Michigan by assisting Michigan businesses in obtaining and performing on federal, state, and local government contracts. Through seminars, events, training, and one-on-one consultations, we work to help local businesses succeed in the government marketplace.

Our services are free of charge to businesses located within the 11 counties throughout Michigan's Northeast Lower Peninsula: Alcona, Alpena, Cheboygan, Crawford, Iosco, Montmorency, Ogemaw, Oscoda, Otsego, Presque Isle and Roscommon counties.


The Northeast Michigan Consortium PTAC is funded in part by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the Michigan Strategic Fund ("MSF"), and through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency.
