The Government Contract Assistance Program (GCAP) has delivered procurement technical assistance services to thousands of Oregon businesses for a quarter of a century, since its inception in 1986. We have provided counseling and training leading to hundreds of millions in contract awards for our clients. GCAP is the only organization available to Oregon businesses that provides in-depth procurement counseling, technical training, and marketing assistance on government contracting. The first PTAP cooperative agreement funds awarded in the State went to the Port of Coos Bay in 1986.
Through Congressional and local support the program was expanded to include the entire state of Oregon in 1989. GCAP provides assistance to businesses all over the state, working in partnership with other business assistance providers (e.g. Small Business Development Centers-SBDC, Chambers of Commerce, Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition-PNDC, Small Business Administration-SBA, etc.).
GCAP provides procurement technical assistance services to Oregon small businesses, including training and counseling in marketing their goods and services to the DOD, as well as state, local and other federal government agencies. In recent years, a large portion of our training has focused on electronic commerce with the government. Our counseling/training covers a wide variety of procurement topics including procurement policies, pre-award procedures, bid and proposal preparation, and post-award administration activities.
"GCAP, which serves as a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), is funded in part through a cooperative agreement from the Department of Defense (DOD) through a program that is administered by the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). The content of any written materials or verbal communications of the PTAC does not necessarily reflect the official views of or imply endorsement by DOD or DLA."
GCAP is administered by the Organization for Economic Iniatives, Inc. OEI also receives funds from Business Oregon.
