Government Procurement

Many small businesses are interested in selling their products or services to federal, state and local government agencies, as the U.S. government is the largest purchaser of goods and services in the world. State and local government agencies also purchase significant amounts of products and services.

The Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development is partnering with the University of Kentucky Small Business Development Center (KSBDC) to establish a Kentucky Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC). Fully operated by the KSBDC, the center provides free counseling, training and bid-match services to help small businesses explore and pursue government contracting opportunities.

To learn more about how this service may be able to assist your government contracting efforts, call the KSBDC at 859-257-7668 or visit their website at
