AZPTAC LogoArizona Procurement Technical Assistance Center (AZPTAC)

AZPTAC is a statewide program that works with small business owners to help them realize the opportunities of government contracting. We do this by providing confidential, no cost, one-on-one counseling and resource assistance to the small business community throughout the State of Arizona.


 We offer no cost, one-on-one assistance in these areas and more:

  • Marketing to the government
  • Assistance with government registrations and certifications
  • Advice on bids, proposals and post award functions
  • Government contracting laws
  • Identifying Mentor-Protege, teaming and subcontracting opportunities

You may be ready to compete for contracts if:

  • You have a legally registered small business;
  • You have been in business for approximately two years and have a history of past performance;
  • You are financially stable; and
  • You have the time and resources to commit to this process.
