ACPAC - Mission
The primary mission of the Angelina College Procurement Assistance Center (ACPAC) is to cultivate an interest by the Small Business Community to participate in Government Procurement.
The Department of Defense (and other Governmental agencies as well) is fully committed toward making a concerted effort to seek out and assist Small Businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB), Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Small Business Concerns, Service-disabled Veteran-owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), and Historically Black Colleges and Minority Institutions (HBCU/MIs).
ACPAC is to generate interest among our clients in bidding on and receiving government procurement awards.To provide specialized and professional assistance to individuals and businesses seeking to learn about contracting and subcontracting opportunities, actively seeking contracting and subcontracting opportunities, and/or performing under contracts and subcontracts with DoD, other federal agencies, or state and local governments.
The secondary mission of ACPAC is to generate job opportunities in the area we service, through either:
Receipt of new government procurement, which results in generation of new jobs.
Receipt of new government procurement, which results in planned layoffs being delayed or canceled, thereby retaining jobs.
A third mission is the introduction of clients in our service area to new technologies and the benefits this technology can provide them, regardless of whether the source is government or commercial.
A fourth mission is to assist Veterans in understanding their benefits and processes so that they can become a Service-disabled Veteran-owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB). This is strictly based upon ACPAC employees who are Veterans or Veteran Family Members who have a desire to assist other Veterans.
