Are you ready?
I just took a call from a client. He is in need of PTAC help – Right Now! He needs to have a higher bonding level because there is a job he wants to bid, but he can’t meet the bonding requirement. Although I am pleased the client called PTAC for assistance, I would have rather received a call from him about six months ago.
I know how busy it gets when you are running a business. I worked in a small business for twenty five years. Every day you start with a list of a hundred things to do, and by the end of the day after doing two hundred things, the list has a hundred and fifty things on it! You wear many hats and perform many jobs. But I want to add one more job title to the long list you already sport – Planner!
Whether it is securing bonding, applying for a government certifications like federal 8(a) or HUBZone; even some of the registrations for government contracting –these things take time. Often these items are the only things that stand between you and the opportunity you have been working toward for years. They exist at all levels of contracting – federal, state and local. Will you be ready when that opportunity comes knocking?
Here what you do! Call us, make an appointment and let’s sit together and discuss your plans. Let’s talk about the registrations that the government will expect you to have completed before you bid. We should look closely at the ownership and structure of your company to see if there are any certifications for which you may be eligible. We can work together to prepare you to meet your government contracting goals. Let’s put the PRE in preparation!
