NADC-PTAC’s Mission

The NADC-PTAC’s mission is to maximize the number of capable Native American owned companies in the Rocky Mountain and Great Plains Regions in the government marketplace. Providing our clients with an understanding of the requirements of government contracting and the marketing know-how to successfully obtain and perform federal, state, local and tribal government contracts is a top priority of NADC PTAC. Supporting government agencies in reaching and working with suppliers is also crucial to the success of this program.
