Accepting Government P-cards
Thursday, August 5
The Government Purchase Card (‘P-card’, or ‘GPC’) is used to streamline payment procedures and reduce the administrative burden associated with purchasing supplies and services. The GPC provides “on the spot” purchasing, receiving, and payment authority for individuals other than contracting or purchasing officers.

Introduction to Government Contracting
Monday, Aug 16
Did you know that hundreds of NH companies sell over $2.5 billion per year to government agencies? Focusing on federal opportunities, this workshop will help you determine whether contracting or being a subcontractor are good strategies for your business. It's not like B2B, but it might be a great market for your products or services.

Procurement Technical Assistance Center Supported Events

Annually (normally in December), the New Hampshire Procurement Technical Assistance Center provides companies with opportunities to meet face-to-face with small business specialists from government agencies, as well as with small business liaison officers (SBLOs) from large prime contractors.  

The event is co-sponsored by the NH Small Business Administration and the NH Small Business Development Center, and NH PTAC.  



This procurement technical assistance center is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency. We are also funded by the NH Department of Business and Economic Affairs, and we operate as a program within the Division of Economic Development.
