With assistance from the Center for Industrial Services’ (CIS) Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), Claiborne County businesses won government contracts worth more than $28 million. PTAC consultants work with businesses across Tennessee to help coach them through the federal government contract process.

The UT County Technical Assistant Service (CTAS) helped Claiborne, Grainger, Hancock, and Hawkins 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.

Five law enforcement officials from Jefferson 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 Plainview with various accounting treatments and their journal entries.
