Client Testimonials About the Economic Alliance of Snohomish County:

“I appreciate all the staff I’ve worked with; dedicated and energetic.”
“Our PTAC contact (John Tamble) went above and beyond the call of duty and personally spent the time on the phone with us to answer our many questions re:  federal solicitation requirements. Being a former contracts officer himself, John was able to walk us through the practical details of preparing an effective bid. The daunting process was much more manageable after our phone consultation. For Washington manufacturers like ourselves who are able to tackle federal contracts, PTAC was a huge, huge help.”  ~Ryan Vandriel, TriVan Truck Body LLC
