Government Contracting (PTAC)

Federal, state, and local governments spend over $1 trillion annually on virtually any product or service imaginable, and a large part of that is with small businesses. Major prime contractors also subcontract a significant share of their government contracts to small firms.

In the Greater Johnstown region (Cambria and Somerset Counties), over $2 billion in contracts and subcontracts have been awarded within the last decade.

If you’ve already established yourself in Cambria or Somerset County as a cost-effective, quality conscious, commercial business with a track record of satisfied clients, the JARI Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) can assist you in tapping into this lucrative government opportunity.  We provide both one-to-one counseling and group training with peer organizations.

There’s no application form, just contact us to start using our help.  Most JARI PTAC services are available at no cost to you. Our only objective is getting you results.

Some of areas where we offer assistance are listed below. (If you don’t see it email, ) Click on the links for more detail.
