LRCC Government Contracting Division Helps Local Businesses Land $50+ Million in State, Local & Federal Contracts

PTAC Division Remains Strong as Sequester, Budget Cuts Take Affect

 

(Lansing, Mich.) – The South Central Michigan Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) of The Enterprise Group of Jackson, housed at the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce, is pleased to report that they have helped tri-county (Ingham, Eaton and Clinton) businesses land over $54 million in government contracts for 2013, creating or retaining almost 1,100 jobs.

The PTAC Division has remained flat over the last year, in spite of large budget and sequestration cuts sustained by the federal government. The 2013 total is off the 2012 final numbers by less than $100,000.

The Procurement Technical Assistance Centers of Michigan provide local businesses with the resources and know-how to successfully obtain government contracts. Through seminars, events, training and consultations, PTACs assist Michigan businesses with obtaining and performing on federal, state and local government contracts, all at no charge to the business.

“The PTAC service continues to gain visibility in the business community as a viable option for economic growth in a challenging, but profitable, sector of business – government contracts,” said Kim Langenberg, Lansing Satellite PTAC Office of South Central Michigan. “This last year, while proving to be challenging, has also shown the enormous interest and success local businesses have with government contracts.”

Broken down by quarter, the South Central PTAC office, housed at the Lansing Regional Chamber, assisted with Government awards to local businesses totaling:

  • 2013 Quarter 1: 295 awards totaling $10,771,359, which retained or created 216 jobs.
  • 2013 Quarter 2: 653 awards totaling $16,826,792, which retained or created 337 jobs.
  • 2013 Quarter 3: 586 awards totaling $16,347,370, which retained or created 327 jobs.
  • 2013 Quarter 4: 276 awards totaling $10,689,476, which retained or created 214 jobs.
    • 2013 Totals: 1,810 awards totaling $54,634,997, which retained or created 1,094 jobs
