The Procurement Technical Assistance Program (PTAP) is now under the management of the Department of Defense (DoD) Office of Small Business Programs (OSBP) and has changed our name to APEX Accelerators. The 95+ centers, including the Illinois  PTAC, will be transitioning to the new name in FY23!  Please note, our mission, and assistance will not change.  We are still here to assist Illinois businesses with all of their government contracting needs – Federal, State, local and related subcontracting.  What will be changing is our scope and DoD resources will increase in order to do more for the businesses we assist.  So, whether we are called a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) or an APEX Accelerator, we will continue to be here for you, our clients, partners, and stakeholders.
