Welcome to the Kentucky Procurement Technical Center.  We are here to help.

We are co-located with twelve Innovation Network offices across the state, which share space with public and private universities and economic development organizations. This is to ensure that each of our clients are able to access face-to-face PTAC support and attend PTAC events as immediately as possible, without the hassle of across state travel. However, we have Procurement Specialists located in Lexington who can be reached by phone and email, and who will travel to conduct on-site visits as necessary. If you’d prefer immediate, on-site assistance, or otherwise general needs assessment, connections, or broader business assistance, contact your Innovation Network Office. For all matters pertaining to effective and efficient government procurement, contact our PTAC staff.

Minimum cybersecurity standards are described in NIST Special Publication 800-171 and break down into the following 14 areas:

  1. Access Control
  2. Awareness & Training
  3. Audit & Accountability
  4. Configuration Management
  5. Identification & Authentication
  6. Incident Response
  7. Maintenance
  8. Media Protection
  9. Personnel Security
  10. Physical Protection
  11. Risk Assessment
  12. Security Protection
  13. System & Communication Protection
  14. System & Info Integrity

Contractors must notify the DoD CIO within 30 days of contract award of any security requirements not implemented at the time of contract award. Contractors can propose alternate, equally effective measures to DoD’s CIO through their Contracting Officer.
