I hope this newsletter finds everyone in the best of health!
As we enter the start of Fall ’22, we are also starting our new PTAC contract year 2022-2023! This year we are focusing on partnering with Primes and how to contract with State and Local governments. This is in addition to our regular webinars/workshop on certifications, SAM registration, teaming/Joint Ventures, Capability Statement, etc. Please join us for one or all events.
We will be highlighting one of our PTAC staff each month. Be on the lookout for the “Get to know your PTAC” article and find out about your PTAC personnel.
Continued SAM issues
For clients who are still experiencing SAM issues, please contact your PTAC specialist. We have a dedicated PTAC specialist that will escalate your issues to GSA/SAM if they meet these requirements.
Escalate urgent issues only, e.g. the entity cannot get paid due to their registration expiring or the entity has a pending award. We have limited capacity to handle escalations and want to ensure we are prioritizing those who need it most.
Escalate entity validation issues only, e.g. the entity cannot get a name/address match or fails date/state of incorporation. Do not escalate issues with IRS, CAGE, or any other entity registration issue.
National PTAC Day with a panel of our current and previous PTAC Success Award winners
Join us in celebrating National PTAC Day: “The Challenges and Successes of Government Contracting” with our AZPTAC Success Awardees. They each manage, control and operate their own small businesses and continue to grow in the government sector. They will be part of our panel and speak about their experience in government contracting and answer questions that helped them succeed in this arena. Please join us in this “in-person” event and learn from your peers!
Lastly, we are still working on our partial return to the office and what that will look like for “in-person” client meetings. The dates and times for each office will be posted on our website and sent out in our next newsletter.
