  • Kathie Bailey, Montana PTAC, Government Contracting 101
    • The government, (local, state or federal) purchases many items and services.
      • Think: plumbers, electricians, contractors, automotive service and repair, painting, fencing, lawn care, food and beverage, TVs and electronics, hardware supplies, etc.  Almost anything you can think of, the government buys it.
    • If you are not currently registered in the appropriate systems to provide your goods and services to the government, contact Kathie at Snowy Mountain Development Center in Lewistown or the Montana PTAC website for contact information.
    • Their services are free of charge and they can help you navigate the world of government contracting, as another line of your business.


  • Vote – Person of Influence – Hold Until October Meeting, will vote for two people.
