Small Business Technical Center
The NCRC Small Business Technical Center (SBTC) supports the small business efforts to pursue and win government and private contracts. Our services include One-on-One Counseling, Strategic Plan Development, Opportunity Identification and Vetting, Financial Loan Support and Facilitation of Teaming Agreements.
We work closely with our clients to insure efficient business operations, use of best business management practices, strategic planning, problem solving, resource identification and financial literacy/loan packaging.
Strategic Plan Development
We will review existing plans or assist our clients in developing a business plan from scratch. We ask our clients to think strategically about what they are planning, to know their competition and to incorporate the latest laws, regulations, tax changes, and the like, into their thinking.
Opportunity Identification and Vetting
SBTC assists its clients to identify and develop procurement pipelines by closely monitoring local, state and federal procurement and contracting activities and by regularly meeting with officials at various local and federal agencies.
Financial Loan Support
SBTC assists its clients by helping to determine their loan requirements, by educating them on what banks (and other financial institutions) will be looking for, by reviewing the strategic plan and required financial documents prior to submission, and by referring clients to banks and other financial institutions.
SBTC facilitates teaming by maintaining a database of vetted small businesses with experience in government and commercial contracting. As opportunities are uncovered, we present appropriate partners, based on opportunity requirements, for consideration.
