Message from Frank Dixon, State Director

2021 CT PTAC program year brought much emphasis to new updates in various federal government registration processes but not limited to Sam.gov, Certify.SBA.gov, Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification(CMMC) and Veterans Certifications; in addition to the State of CT’s Diversity Supplier Certification which now requires a business to have a Cage Code in Sam.gov. 

 

The CT PTAC team also participated in the APTAC Fall 2021 Hybrid Training Conference in Washington, DC. The conference included training and information sessions presented by PTAC professionals, federal agency officials, private industry experts, and experienced PTAC colleagues to more than 300+ attendees in-person and virtually. Also, during the conference the CT PTAC team gained more insight into the administrative move of the PTAP program from DLA to the Office of Small Business Programs at DoD.

 

This year also included our successful “Doing Business with Municipalities” series which included three (3) counties and 15+ towns / municipalities with 180 attendees. This has been an amazing year for our client base which has won an estimated $250M in federal, state, municipal and subcontract awards. Happy Holiday!!!
