PTAC Expert Panel to Answer Your Contracting Questions at CMMC Con 2021

By Kristen Morales • September 23, 2021

Determining whether you’re positioned to contract with the government can be intimidating. Requirements include registration with various databases, meeting standards, and of course, compliance with CMMC.

 

Fortunately, help is available free of charge through Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs).  And at CyberSheath’s CMMC Con 2021, we’re bringing together three PTAC executives for a panel to answer your most pressing contracting questions.

 

The panel will include Jodi Essex, PTAC Director for Iowa; Frank Migneco, PTAC Director for the NEPA Alliance; and Thomas Gerke, Regional Manager for PTAC in Utah. Essex has procurement experience in both the public and private sectors, including time at Iowa State University. Migneco has more than 20 years of experience working for an investor-owned utility in New Jersey managing a $35 million per year program portfolio. Gerke has 40 years of experience in government supply chain and logistics processes.

 

With 95 PTACs across the country, companies can get 1-on-1 counseling and assistance in their journey to contract with the government. Services include matchmaking and “meet the buyers” events, as well as training workshops.

 

The PTAC panel’s session will be held at 11:30 a.m. EDT followed by a LIVE Q&A during CMMC Con on Sept. 29. Register for CMMC Con 2021 now to join the discussion and learn more about no-cost resources available to assist companies with cybersecurity compliance.
