About the Norcal PTAC

The NorCal PTAC is hosted by the Northern California Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network. We help businesses build their government contracting capacity. NorCal PTAC Procurement Counselors can help simplify the process of selling to the government, and help your business:

  • Determine whether federal, state, or local contracting is right for your business
  • Navigate entry into the procurement marketplace
  • Identify the agencies that your business should target for contracts
  • Meet requirements necessary to compete for contracts
  • Interpret complex regulations
  • Review and improve bids and proposals



PTAC Nationwide Network

Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) form a nationwide network of dedicated procurement professionals working to help local businesses compete successfully in the government marketplace. PTACs are the bridge between buyer and supplier, bringing to bear their knowledge of both government contracting and the capabilities of contractors to maximize fast, reliable service to our government with better quality and at lower costs.
