GOED Works to Pair Utah Businesses with Battelle

Press Release

April 5, 2013

Salt Lake City – The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) held a  half-day outreach with invited Utah small businesses who might qualify as sub-contracting vendors to Battelle, the world’s largest nonprofit research and development organization, with more than 20,000 employees at more than 100 locations globally.

Battelle is working with GOED, the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) and PTAC’s consulting contractor Logistic Specialties Inc. to grow its vendor pool.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to meet with small business in Utah and explain who we are, what we do, and why we do it,” said Mike Hogan from Battelle. “Small businesses provide exceptional creativity and many other crucial ingredients needed to develop and deliver best value solutions for our government clients and the taxpayers they serve in meeting current and future threats to our national security.”

PTAC and LSI program officers regularly meet with Utah small businesses to discuss subcontracting in support of their ongoing missions and registered companies can be invited to teaming meetings such as the one held for Battelle.

GOED and PTAC are committed to introducing large government prime contractors to Utah small businesses in order to facilitate subcontracting opportunities. Events such as the one just held with PTAC registered small businesses can help Utah businesses enter government contracting much easier.

"PTAC is excited that it was able to provide small and medium sized Utah businesses with the opportunity to participate in the Battelle Outreach meeting,” said Fred Lange, PTAC director. Utah companies can become involved in government contracts by partnering with large prime contractors like Battelle. When a small company is teamed with a large contractor, the risk/reward ratio significantly improves for the small company.”

Utah businesses interested in participating in future outreach events can contact the PTAC offices in the Governors’ Office of Economic Development at 801-538-8655 or emailing myrnahill@utah.gov
