NM APEX Accelerator


The New Mexico APEX Accelerator is a state-wide, Department of Defense (DoD) funded program which helps small businesses who want to sell their goods or services to governments, educational institutions, or tribal entities. Our staff of advisors are experienced in government contracting and provide a wide range of services, including individual counseling and training to enable businesses to successfully compete for government contracts. NM APEX Accelerator plays a critical role in the DoD’s efforts to identify and help a wide range of businesses enter and participate in the defense supply-chain as well as helping New Mexico’s economy.

PTAC offers free, confidential counseling in the areas of: how to register your business in government databases (required for federal contracting); research strategies for accessing federal, state, and local government markets; how to market yourself to the government; how to respond effectively to a request for proposal (RFP) and a request for quotation (RFQ); how to obtain federal set-aside certifications for which you may qualify; federal accounting invoicing practices; post-award guidance; understanding government regulations; cybersecurity regulations, and overall, how to be “contract ready”.

New Mexico APEX Accelerator is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the DoD. The program is supported with matching funds from the state of New Mexico and is hosted by the Santa Fe Community College.

NM APEX Accelerator has offices around the state of New Mexico, located at the Higher Education Center in Santa Fe, CNM’s Workforce Training Center in Albuquerque, the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce, the Clovis Community College in Clovis and at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces.
