The Wyoming Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), under the direction of its new federal funding partner, the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), is changing its name to Wyoming APEX Accelerator.
The former PTAC, part of the Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network housed at the University of Wyoming, is the state’s expert in government contracting assistance. Over the years, PTAC has helped Wyoming small businesses secure hundreds of millions of dollars in federal, state and local government contracts.
Janean Forsyth, Wyoming APEX Accelerator program manager, believes this new name captures the spirit of collaboration and forward-thinking that defines the program’s mission.
“We are committed to continuing to serve the businesses of our state and look forward to assisting new and existing government contractors as Wyoming APEX Accelerator,” Forsyth says. “Our assistance will not change. We continue to be here for all of your government contracting needs. You’ll continue to experience exceptional support, just under a new name.”
Wyoming APEX Accelerator, along with over 95 other government contracting assistance centers nationwide, is now under the management of DOD’s Office of Small Business Programs. In addition to federal funding, Wyoming APEX Accelerator also is supported by the Wyoming Business Council; is a program within the Wyoming SBDC Network; and a component of UW’s Business Resource Network. As the PTAC name sunsets in 2023, a transition to implement the program’s new name and branding will take place.
Serving the entire state, Wyoming APEX Accelerator has and will continue to support small businesses looking to enter the government contracting market. The new brand reflects the program’s focus on driving innovation, and the program will continue to offer its no-cost resources and guidance on the procurement process to help small businesses thrive.
