CT PTAC Wins Statewide Non-Profit Partnership Award

Last month, the CT Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) was awarded the Non-Profit Partnership Award at the Annual CT Minority Construction Council (MCC) Awards Dinner. The event hosted prime contractors, local and state politicians, as well as other CT state agencies.
The Non-Profit Partnership Award is awarded to a non-profit organization that has worked with the Minority Construction Council in the areas of development and advocacy for minority contractors. CT PTAC, a statewide program located in Groton, provides procurement assistance to businesses that are interested in selling their goods or services to federal, state, or local governments.
