Government Contracting

Interested in marketing your product or service to a federal, state or local government agency? Did you know there are set-asides from federal agencies for woman-owned, service-disabled veteran, HUBZone and other small certified businesses? Are you interested in locating subcontracting opportunities with federal prime contract holders?

The Cattaraugus County Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) can assist you in navigating through the steps necessary to do business with the government. The PTAC (Procurement Technical Assistance Program) is dedicated to promoting economic growth in our County and region. We provide confidential one-on-one consulting and training to assist businesses with marketing goods and/or services to federal, state and local governments. We have the resources to help you grow your business and, as a governmental organization, most of our services are free. The PTAC has been assisting businesses since 1987 and is funded by a cooperative agreement between Cattaraugus County and the Department of Defense. The PTAC offers webinars and online meetings so a business won't have to waste time traveling to and from training sessions or workshops.
