PTAC Hosts Free Community Workshop at New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church


Genesee Regional PTAC(FLINT, MICHIGAN) Flint businesses looking to grow can learn how to contract with the government by joining the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) as they present the Selling your Products or Services to the Government workshop.  For the first time, PTAC is hosting the workshop in the community on Tuesday, July 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the New Jerusalem Full Gospel Baptist Church.

Dustin Frigy, Director of PTAC at the Regional Chamber says government contracting just may provide the best opportunity for businesses to grow and diversify this year.  He says PTAC is bringing the workshop to the community to share the many ways businesses of all sizes can benefit from working with local, state and federal government departments.

“Countless businesses don’t think about government contracting when they are looking to grow,” said Frigy. “But they really should take a look at getting in on the over $500 billion dollar government contracting market.  If you come to the seminar on July 10, we will show you the nuts and bolts of government contracting, so that you can explore the possibilities for your business.”

Attendees also will learn about the services and support the Regional Chamber PTAC has available to assist with the contracting process. The workshop will benefit management and employees who currently support or have an interest in facilitating government contracting within their companies.

The seminar focuses on the following topics:

  • Eligibility Requirements
  • Types of Solicitations
  • Marketing Strategies
  • Laws and Regulations
  • How to Request a Post-Submission Debriefing
  • What Products and Services does the State of Michigan buy?
  • Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
