In 2011, ASI was referred to the College of DuPage Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) for help in submitting a proposal to the US General Services Administration (GSA).  Center staff assisted client in understanding the GSA Schedule process, identifying the correct scheduling and then clarifying exactly what the proposal submission requirements are.  Ongoing follow-up meetings occurred to help client in modifying documents as needed and offer insight and recommendations from a technical expertise for stronger and positive evaluation by the contracting staff of GSA. 

The owner of ASI stated, "I have utilized the services of the Illinois Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) at the College of DuPage Center for Entrepreneurship since 2010.   I started my business in 2009 and wanted to find out about certification programs in the Federal market.  It was a daunting task until I went to the center and received assistance from Rita Haake and staff.  I received an outline and the procedures to take.  What a relief, a process with all the steps to take to follow. "

Client was awarded their GSA 03 FAC contract in June 2012.  A contract was awarded to them through the GSA Schedule by May 2013, and they have recently submitted award documentation.  As the owner of ASI explained, "The best part, my company now has a GSA Schedule and 8(a) certified that opens the opportunities for me.  Once we received these procurement tools we were educated on how the center could help us secure opportunities by marketing skills and the Intel that helped seek opportunities like "My Bid Match".  The networking opportunities offered have been a valuable resource to learn not only how to network, but also how to learn the best method to utilize technology in working more efficiently."  

Outside of the bid matching service, the center has conducted various research utilizing various federal websites to better serve ASI with their marketing efforts.  We look forward to assisting them in the long term for continued growth! 

Congrats Village of Frankfort on a successful business.
