The Department of Defense, Procurement Technical Assistance Program (PTAP) was established by Congress in 1985 to assist private sector businesses in marketing goods and services to the Department of Defense (DOD). In 1991 the program was opened to include all federal agencies.
Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTAC) have been established in almost every state to provide direct services to businesses. To find a PTAC in another state or territory, visit the Association of Professional Technical Assistance Programs (APTAC).
NH-PTAP, which serves as a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), is funded in part through a cooperative agreement from the Department of Defense (DOD) through a program that is administered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The content of any written materials or verbal communications of the PTAC does not necessarily reflect the official views of or imply endorsement by DOD or DLA. NH-PTAP is also funded by the NH Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED), and operates as a program of the Business Resource Center within the Division of Economic Development (DED).
