Rockland Economic Development Corporation’s Procurement Technical Assistance Center (REDC PTAC) helps to level the playing field with services small businesses need to be successful. We provide expert government contracting assistance to small businesses who often lack the staff, time or expertise to pursue government contracts on their own.
Arch Street Communications (ASC) is one of our proud success stories—in fact, last year REDC PTAC clients secured prime and subcontracting awards totaling more than $141 million. For more than 10 years, REDC PTAC has helped ASC with mentorship in navigating federal procurement and networking opportunities with government agencies including securing a federal General Services Administration schedule to certification as a women-owned small business. These services helped to open doors in the government procurement process. And it has paid off for ASC – contributing to a 50% increase in their staff.
REDC PTAC helps all eligible businesses with registrations, certifications, developing marketing strategies and everything that they need to sell to federal, state and local government entities. Our services are free of charge and can range from individual counseling, helping to create a government marketing plan to webinars, and workshops. We help businesses become more responsive to and successful in the government’s procurement process. Through the success of our clients, the REDC PTAC program promotes a vigorous and growing local economy which, in turn, contributes to job creation.
