The mission of MO PTAC is to help Missouri businesses sell to the government. We work with all kinds of Federal, State and Local agencies, but with a particular emphasis on the US Department of Defense and its many divisions.
MO PTAC is one of 93 PTACs nationwide funded by the PTAP (Procurement Technical Assistance Program) of the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA).
Some PTACs are regional, so there are several within a state; some, like MO PTAC, are Statewide. There is also a PTAC based in Joplin MO called Heartland PTAC, originally a regional PTAC for southwest MO but which now serves the entire state of Kansas as well.
MO PTAC is part of University of Missouri Extension Business Development Programs.
MO PTAC is headquartered in Columbia MO on the UM-Columbia campus.
MO PTAC field staff are located in Columbia, St. Louis, Kansas City, West Plains, and Rolla MO.
