All 29 counties in Utah are important to Procurement Technical Assistance Center, which is a business development program guiding business owners through the process of successfully securing government contracts. Known as PTAC, this government agency supports our small businesses development, with an emphasis on rural business development. Last year alone, this group helped win over $421 million in contracts, starting numerous businesses and creating thousands of jobs.

Program Director Chuck Spence says PTAC has eight locations, from Logan to St. George, and offers services like one-on-one counseling, marketing strategy and “how to” workshops to navigate the sometimes-challenging world of securing government contracting. These services are offered at no cost and demonstrate our state leadership’s commitment to small business throughout Utah. The area of focus for PTAC is the underserved business market, which includes veteran, female and minority-owned companies.

Chuck has a varied business background that helped him develop his passion for the underserved business market. He’s worked with all types of businesses and his business expertise is helping him integrate with resource partners at Procurement Technical Assistance Center. They also provide a bid matching service to help companies understand what contracts might fit their needs and additional large corporations looking for contractors with other small businesses throughout the state.
