Have you thought about expanding your business by selling to the Government and backed away when you found out what was involved? Or do you have a few Contracts and don’t know how to grow that part of your business. You’re not alone. But before you stop here, you will want to look at The New Hampshire Procurement Technical Assistance Program (NH-PTAP.)
NH-PTAP helps New Hampshire client businesses – whether large, small, newly established, minority owned, women-owned, veteran owned, etc… obtain information needed to bid competitively on Department of Defense, federal, state and local contracts.
NH-PTAP can automatically match your company’s product or service with daily bid notices that report what the government is buying or planning to buy. In addition, NH-PTAP provides resources, personal one-on-one guidance, training, networking opportunities, and vendor/client matchmaking events to help you develop that business. Their services also offer comprehensive assistance in:
- Market Research
- Identifying Business Codes (NAICS, SICS, FSC & PSC)
- Registering on all appropriate web sites (CCR, SBA & ORCA)
- Matching a firm’s product or service with that being purchased by the federal government
- Interpretation of solicitations
- Obtaining specifications
- Locating Federal Acquisition Regulations (FARS, DFARS & CFRS)
- Process Management Skills
- GSA – General Services Administration schedules
Getting started can be an involved process but those who are pressing on and taking advantage of NH-PTAP services are finding some very lucrative business. (Read about success stories http://www.nheconomy.com/Success.Stories.aspx)
