Get Free Assistance with Government Contracting
The PTAC Team will discuss the free services offered to small business owners when exploring government contracting opportunities.
Larry oversees the Technology & Operational Procurement Services Division. The division consists of 9 buyers and group managers who are responsible for procuring a wide range of technology acquisitions and service contracts.
NJASDO, funded by the Port Authority of NY & NJ, matches the talent and resources of area businesses with the purchasing opportunities of aviation industry buyers through a system of referrals. Helene’s leadership of this organization has resulted in over $860 million in contract awards to businesses in Union, Essex, Hudson and Bergen counties.
Helene brings a solid background in the aviation industry, having worked at Eastern Airlines at both Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports and KLM, where she was involved in the development of a global distribution system for the travel and tourism industry.
Maryann brings over 30 years of government contracting experience to her position as director of UCEDC’s PTAC program. She brings a unique perspective to the job as she’s held positions on both sides of the table – helping businesses to obtain government contracts as well as overseeing the government contract process for a manufacturing concern in New Jersey.
Following an 18-year tenure as a senior contracting official for Greenbrier Industries in Englewood Cliffs, Maryann served as director of the Rockland County PTAC for 13 years. She joined UCEDC in 2007, and under her direction, the PTAC program was awarded the 2010 “Outstanding Center Award” by the Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (APTAC).
In her role as a procurement counselor with UCEDC’s PTAC program, Nadine assists small business owners with marketing and selling their products and services to federal, state and local government agencies.
With more than 20 years of combined experience in both the public and private sectors of government contracting, Nadine has a thorough grasp of how to navigate the government contracting system. She believes that this familiarity enables her to successfully help small businesses understand how to find, bid, win, and perform on government contracts.
