The Florida APEX Accelerator (formerly the Procurement Technical Assistance Center) helps Florida-based businesses identify, compete for, and win government contracts.

Established by Congress in 1985, APEX Accelerators expand the number of businesses capable of participating in the broad spectrum of opportunities available to support America’s industrial base. The APEX Accelerators program focuses on building strong, sustainable, and resilient U.S. supply chains by assisting a wide range of businesses that pursue and perform under contracts with the DoD, other federal agencies, state and local governments and with government prime contractors.

Government contracting services are offered by the Florida APEX Accelerator powered statewide by the University of West Florida.
