We are committed to assisting all Native American Indians to achieve self-sufficiency by assisting in the development and expansion of the Native American private sector, making a positive impact on reservation communities, and establishing business relationships with private industries, federal, state, local, and tribal government procurement offices.
"Our mission is to develop and expand an American Indian private sector which employs Indian labor, increases the number of viable tribal and individual Indian businesses, and positively impacts and involves reservation communities, by establishing business relationships between Indian enterprises and private industry."
The National Center's PTAC Origin
The National Center’s PTAC provides professional business consulting services and technical assistance to Native American-owned businesses regarding marketing and selling to the Federal, state, local and tribal governments and large prime contractors. Assistance extends to all Native American businesses (American Indian, Alaska Native Corporations and Native Hawaiians) and includes tribes and individual businesses both on and off reservations. Services are free. This procurement technical assistance center is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the Defense Logistics Agency.
