Northwest Native Procurement Technical Assistance Center (NN PTAC)

Currently, ONAC is creating the Northwest Native Procurement Technical Assistance Center (NN PTAC). Michelle Ramey has transitioned from ONAC Statewide Resource Navigator to the NN PTAC Program Manager. The NN PTAC is dedicated to helping Native owned businesses who want to sell their goods or services to the government, educational institutions, or tribal entities. NN PTAC staff provide assistance to native owned small businesses interested in becoming certified; such as minority-owned, women-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned business owners and emerging small businesses, who are interested in contracting with government agencies, educational institutions and Tribal entities. Certain government projects must satisfy specific equity, diversity, and inclusion targets and awarding the companies that are certified; NN PTAC makes the process much easier and faster. Think of it as equity contracting and recession resiliency for your business. 

We are in the process of creating our website and setting dates for training events. The NN PTAC web site is one place you will be able to find a listing of the wide range of services provided, register as an NN PTAC client, find links to our social media accounts as well as the calendar of events. 
·       Workshops and Matchmaking Events teach you what you need to know and connect you with other businesses and agency buyers to successfully compete for government contracts.
·       One-on-One Counseling tailored to your specific needs – always free of charge!
·       SAM Assistance: System for Award Management (SAM) registration is FREE, and we can help you with this and everything else you need to sell to federal, state and local government agencies at little or no charge.

This ONAC Program is funded, in part, by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
