Stuart Johnson
President, BlueWater Analytics

"I want to thank the Louisiana PTAC for all the help and guidance during the bidding process for the Hydroseeding part of the Naval Air Station water distribution project.  This would not have happened without your help!  Contract Award from Naval Air Station - New Orleans for hydro-seeding 1 million square feet."

"We went to our local PTAC to ask for assistance in collecting funds owed to us by a WBE Prime. We were assisted by Eileen Lodge and she was able to get through to the Prime when we had been ignored for weeks. She was fair but firm in telling the Prime what their payment responsibilities were. She even followed up the next week to make sure the Prime communicated to us as promised. We were able to pick up a check for full payment the very next week."

"The Louisiana PTAC has worked with us over the past three years to obtain our GSA schedule, then worked with us  on marketing our GSA schedule to government agencies. After successfully obtaining our GSA schedule and hiring a sales representative focusing directly on government contracting and GSA efforts, we have have received multiple government contracts via the GSA schedule procurement tool." Advantage Personnel was recently awarded LA PTAC 
Contractor of Year at the Louisiana Economic Development Small Business Awards event at the Governor's Mansion on May 2, 2017. Advantage Personnel recently secured a contract with IEM for staff augmentation for the LA Restore Flood Recovery Project."

"At my first meeting with PTAC, Cindy Carrier asked “So why haven’t you pursued 8(a) status? I can help you if you like!” She planted a seed in my head and we are very grateful we listened. Cindy followed us through the process of applying for 8(a) certification and also made sure our profile on SAM accurately reflected the capacity and past performance of our consulting engineering business.

The services PTAC offers tremendously cut down on research time. Since receiving our certification Cindy has facilitated appointments with the Corp of Engineers and even attended the meeting with us. MCA is fortunate to have Cindy and PTAC cheering us on."
