I have been in the federal arena for over 40 years and attended to find out about how local contracts & opportunities are handled. I did not know that cities can share their contract capacity with the county and vice versa without having to mod the contract. ~ TN Federal Consulting, LLC
I attended a PTAC training session, being a new member opening a new business. I expected a good session; instead I got a great session. The folks brought in to assist and answer questions not only on their use of contractors, but on helping us individually were outstanding. I learned a great deal about the system, all of which will be very useful as I progress. A well done to Cate and PTAC. ~Bill Cooper, The Cooper Management Institute, LLC
