As we are all aware, the federal government shut down today. How does this affect Native PTAC services? Hopefully, very little. Our operational funding has already been obligated for this fiscal year. This means that PTAC staff availability and all Bid Match services will remain uninterrupted. However, while the federal government stays in shut down, new federal bid opportunities will unlikely be posted and many staff will be unavailable to contact. New bid opportunities through state and other local entities will continue, provided they are not dependent on federal funding.

We hope this is a very temporary situation. Please contact us if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-816-6596
