RUTLAND — On Tuesday, Jan. 19, Rutland Economic Development Corporation (REDC), the Small Business Development Center and the Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center moved to a collocation site at 67 Merchants Row in Rutland. The new REDC offices will join Castleton Downtown, which includes the Center for Entrepreneurship, Center for Community Engagement and Castleton Polling Institute.

Also, REDC is pleased to introduce Elizabeth Adams as the new procurement counselor for the Rutland and Bennington Vermont Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), which provides businesses with an understanding of the requirements of government contracting and the know-how to obtain and successfully perform federal, state, and local contracts.

Adams provides technical assistance with all components of the process including SAM registration, obtaining specifications and with registering for small business certification programs such as Woman Owned (WOSB) and Service Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVO). She creates automated search profiles to help identify contracting opportunities specific to a client’s product or service.

Look for an upcoming free workshop entitled “Contracting 101 – Selling to the Government” on Feb. 16 at the REDC office in Rutland. To learn more about government contracting and the PTAC program, register at vtptac.ecenterdirect.com.

Elizabeth Adams is a Rutland native who received her Bachelor’s Degree in economics and history from the University of Rochester. Prior to taking the role as procurement counselor for the VT PTAC, Adams managed an emergency communications center with the Vermont State Police. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and painting. Adams and her black Labrador, Grizzly, are also avid members of the Foundry Fly Dogs in Killington and participate in events throughout New England.

Those interested in becoming a PTAC client may contact Elizabeth Adams at elizabeth.adams@vermont.gov to schedule an appointment at her new office collocated with Rutland Economic Development Corporation.

All PTAC services are free for Vermont Small Businesses.
