Learn From the Experts

Nina Moseley
Senior Director, Division of Minority and Women Business Development

New Jersey Department of the Treasury

Under her leadership as senior director, the division issued an annual procurement report of activity across 109+ state agencies.  She also 
centralized and introduced a new array of services on the web.

Nina’s second area of responsibility is registering/certifying all businesses that want to qualify as a Small Business and/or a Minority/Women owned business. These credentials (SBE) are needed to compete under the State Small Business Set Aside Act.  The portfolios headed by Nina led to her being appointed to spearhead a state wide task force reviewing all of the small business rules and regulations. Major changes emulating from that responsibility resulted in a more business friendly, less red tape environment for SMWBEs.

Ana Villagran
Certification Auditor, Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services

New Jersey Department of the Treasury

Ana has worked for the State of New Jersey for 13 years.  
In her current role, she reviews and evaluates applications from vendors who are either registering or being re-certified to participate in the Small Business, Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise Program.

Maryann Williams
Director, PTAC, UCEDC


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).

Nadine Clark
Procurement Counselor, PTAC, UCEDC


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.
