About Cross Timbers

The Cross Timbers Procurement Technical Assistance Center (CTPTAC) helps companies find contracts for work with local, state and federal governments. Our mission is to increase the number of contracts awarded to Dallas-Fort Worth companies resulting in increased revenue and jobs in the area. Based at the University of Texas Arlington, we provide one-on-one counseling, events  and up-to-date research in everything that has to do with selling to government agencies.

CTPTAC is expected to seek out and assist Small Business, Small Disadvantage Business (SDB),Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone Small Business Concerns (HUBZone), Service-disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Historically Black Colleges and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MIs).


Cross Timbers Procurement Technical Assistance Center (CTPTAC), which serves as a Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), is funded in part through a cooperative agreement between the Department of Defense (DOD), through a program that is administered by the Defense Logistic Agency (DLA). The purpose of the PTAC program is to help the Department of Defense satisfy its needs for goods and services by increasing competition in the private sector.

The cooperative agreement with DOD is matched with funds from the University of Texas at Arlington and 3rd party contributors. The 3rd party contributors for this contract year include Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, AtmosEnergy, Bell Helicopter, L-3 Communications, and Ewing Engineered Solutions.
