Success Stories

The Alabama PTAC works with Alabama’s small businesses to help them compete for contract awards at the federal, state, local, and corporate level. Below you will find a small sampling of the companies that we have assisted, and the contracts they have been awarded. (2020/2021)

Low Life Construction, LLC
Piedmont, AL
Awarding Agency:  U.S. Forestry Service
Amount:  $26,290.00
Client Remarks:  Thank you so much for your help with my company securing the fencing project with the U.S. Forestry Service. The workshop you hosted proved to be a significant factor in developing relationships with the client. Also, thank you for your help and guidance during the bidding process.

Qualified Elevator Inspections
Jacksonville, AL
Awarding Agency:  NASA – Marshall Space Flight Center
Amount:  $12,995.00
Client Remarks:   Lindsay reviewed the IFB before the meeting and realized that most of the information was the same as what was required in a SAM registration.  When Joseph arrived, Lindsay went over several items in the IFB and offered clarification to any of his questions.  Since a CAGE code was required for the subcontract, Lindsay explained that it appeared that it would take the same amount of time to apply and obtain a CAGE code as it would to go ahead and register in SAM since there could be other prime opportunities in the future.  They completed the SAM registration process together.  Lindsay explained that she and Joseph needed to check on his SAM status regularly until it became active, and due to the CAGE office’s case load, they may need to escalate the application if it looked like the account would not be active by the time he submitted the bid.  Fortunately, Joseph’s account went active in time, and he sent Lindsay his finalized bid to review.  We won the contract for elevator inspection services at Marshall Space Flight Center for the year successfully bidding $12,995.00.  Since the Huntsville area is prime for federal contracts, this award could open other doors for around the area.
