Frank Dixon APTAC Region 1 – New England Director

Congratulations to Frank Dixon, CTPTAC’s State Director, for being elected to the National level, as Region 1 Director of the Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (APTAC). CTPTAC is proud to be under your leadership, and excited to be a part of your future as Region 1 Director.

Message from Frank Dixon, State Director

CTPTAC’s 2020 program year proved to be an interesting one to say the least, which required adjustments due to the pandemic. On March 13th we moved into a full remote format with our services; conducting 1600 plus counseling hours towards our annual goals, facilitated 50 plus virtual client training events, and accumulated 100 plus staff professional development hours. Already adept in virtual trainings, via “Go-to-Meetings” played a major role in the program achieving an average of 13% above all annual goals. 

Another great testament to our very new staff’s hard work resulted in PTAC clients winning $240 plus million dollars in direct and subcontract awards this year. In addition to our notable client success stories, this year involved some of our clients winning contracts for the first time; which helped the federal, state and local governments meet their demand for Covid-19 related products and services.

Although we will continue to work primarily in a remote capacity, I’m extremely optimistic about the upcoming 2021 program year, as CTPTAC is better equipped to assist our clients, strategic partners, and local communities enhance and grow their their knowledge in government contracting with an immediate focus on Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and Beta.Sam.gov.; in addition to, Women Owned Small Businesses, Veteran Owned Small Businesses, and Socio-Economic Certifications.
