With assistance from the Center for Industrial Services’ (CIS) Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), Sullivan County businesses won government contracts worth more than $35 million. PTAC consultants work with businesses across Tennessee to help coach them through the federal government contract process.

In Carter County, 9 local employees attended CIS’s Manhole Operations and Safety Training course. This course provides the information and practical exercises needed for all personnel safely entering utility access points, vaults, or other utility installations. Additionally, personnel on-site must be trained for rescue from these facilities.

Two law enforcement officers from Carter County attended the UT Law Enforcement Innovation Center’s (LEIC) School Resource Officer (SRO) Basic Training course. This course covers topics such as: Roles and Responsibilities, Law Related Education, School Climates, Safety Procedures, Emergency Management, Active Shooter Tactics, Emotional Issues, Social Media and Technology, and Building Partnerships.

The UT County Technical Assistant Service (CTAS) Sullivan, Carter, and Johnson 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.

A municipal management consultant with the UT Municipal Technical Advisory Service (MTAS) assisted Bluff City with reviewing and updating their personnel policies.
