Subcontracting with federal government agencies
Maryland PTAC serves as a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC)
Funded in part through a cooperative agreement from the Department of Defense (DoD) through a program that is administered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The content of any written materials or verbal communications of the PTAC does not necessarily reflect the official views of or imply endorsement by DoD or DLA.
Most startup and small business owners do not have adequate past performance to obtain prime government contracts. To strengthen their proposals and bids, firms can partner with other companies that have a government contract. Smaller companies often fill niches that round out a prime contractor's services.
Subcontracting opportunties can present small businesses with opportunties that might otherwise be unattainable because of limited resources, personnel, financial stability, or experience. Many federal government resources can help subcontractors identify and locate prime contractors to partner with.
