Get Free Assistance with Government Contracting

Prior to joining the OSDBU, she led complex management initiatives as a Lead Procurement Analyst at the National Institutes of Health Information Technology and Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC).
As the Deputy Director of OSDBU, Dr. Street is responsible for compliance with SBA reporting requirements, ensuring the proper execution of the small business programs at HHS’s 29 operating and staff divisions and overall program and project management.

Director, UCEDC PTAC
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.
