PTAC to Celebrate National PTAC Day on Sept. 21, 2022

Make plans to celebrate National Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) Day with your Tennessee PTAC on September 21, 2022! 

National PTAC Day

Tennessee's PTAC, housed in the UT Center for Industrial Services, works with hundreds of small businesses in Tennessee each year to help them compete successfully for government contracts. National PTAC Day is a collective campaign to celebrate those contracting successes and small businesses who have benefited from training and technical assistance from their local PTACs.

This celebration unites the 90+ PTACs across the country (plus Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands) and the 56,000+ clients they serve by sharing, in real time, small business success stories and the significant economic impact that PTAC clients have created within their communities. 

The Tennessee PTAC team will be celebrating National PTAC Day with a variety of virtual trainings offered at no cost to participants. Check out the schedule:

Welcome to the 2022 PTAC Day Celebration!     9:00 AM - 9:15 AM (CDT)  
Proposal Writing 101   9:20 AM - 11:20 AM (CDT)  
Marketing for Government Contracting   11:30 AM - 1:30 PM (CDT)  
Doing Business in TN   1:40 PM - 2:40 PM (CDT)


Annually the Federal, State, and Local governments in the U.S. award nearly $5.5 Trillion in contracts and subcontracts via the proposal process.


  • Gain an understanding of the overall proposal process and best practices
  • Learn to develop compliance matrices, outlines, and other tools
  • Discover techniques to differentiate your proposals from your competition
  • Have your proposal questions answered

Marketing is one of the most critical components of being successful in Government Contracting, however it isn't the same as the marketing you may have done in the corporate world. Come learn the major tools used to market to the government, and how best to use them!

There will be three concurrent breakout sessions - one for each area (West, Middle, East) of TN. This will be an open session with the PTAC Counselor and some procurement officers from that area. Join this to learn more about doing business in TN.

If you have questions or would like to register for any of these events, please contact Jen Dangelo.
