The NMPTAC Advisors have a wealth of experience in both procurement and business management. In their work with small business owners, they draw on their experience in the areas of accounting, marketing, bid/proposal, pricing, and contract administration. PTAC Advisors assist business owners with all aspects of procurement including registration with government entities, certification programs (both Federal and State), identifying appropriate agencies to target, developing marketing strategies, assistance in proposal development, and the administrative aspects once a contract is awarded. The Advisors utilize the fact that they do come from different backgrounds, often consulting with each other to make sure clients receive the type of help they need at each stage.
To be a NMPTAC client:
The become a NMPTAC client, you must have an existing business (if you do not yet, we can help you know where to go) and be interested in pursuing contracts with governmental entities. That’s it for the requirements, but the preference is that you have a solid business with a history of happy customers, you have business systems in place, like accounting and payroll, and that you are financially viable and could cash flow any contract work you win as a result of our assistance. We do not assist with basic business training, business planning, business capitalization, or start up activities, but our network partner, the NM Small Business Development Center does, found here: http://www.nmsbdc.org/
