With assistance from the Center for Industrial Services’ (CIS) Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), several Bradley County businesses won government contracts worth more than $3 million; and several Hamilton County businesses won government contracts worth more than $23 million. PTAC consultants work with businesses across Tennessee to help coach them through the federal government contract process.

CTAS helped Bradley, and Hamilton Counties each save $12,500 by installing the CTAS Highway Program and GASB34 Asset Management software. The software allows the highway department to have more efficient management of operations, including maintenance analysis and scheduling, funding allocation requests, elimination of some field/site visits, and the streamlined ability to provide information.

Nine law enforcement officials from Bradley County attended the UT Law Enforcement Innovation Center’s (LEIC) STOP Domestic Violence course. This 32 hour course provides instruction for investigating domestic violence incidents.  The participants are better equipped to handle domestic violence situations as well as provide resources for victims. This training is a combination of classroom and practical exercises to provide the attendees with current law enforcement response skills in a variety of domestic violence and sexual assault areas.

A municipal management consultant with the UT Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) assisted the city of Chattanooga with a Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) questions regarding the new overtime rule that went into effect on December 1, 2016.
