Government to Business (G2B) Outreach Event

The Procurement Technical Assistance Program (PTAP), co-funded by Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) and the State of NM is continuing to expand its program of providing free counseling and assistance services to business owners who want to pursue government contracts – local, state and federal.

As a key element of our program we’re continuing our series of quarterly Gov-to-Biz Outreach events. The next one is set for Wednesday, 1 February, from 10 to Noon. This quarter we’ll conduct the event at the Embassy Suites Hotel (1000 Woodward) near I-25 and Lomas.

It is a short-form industry day, i.e. an opportunity for you to meet and learn contract requirements / forecasts from government contracting officials, and then have some “speed-dating” with them. This is a rare opportunity for PTAP clients and prospective clients to connect directly, face-to-face with local, state and Federal government procurement officials.

Sign up now. Call us if you have any challenges registering.
