Rockville, MD – January 29, 2018 – TechGlobal today announced the company has been awarded a multi-year IDIQ contract with the Department of the Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) for agency’s Permits Online (PONL) Support Services. This contract award continues a mutually beneficial relationship between TechGlobal and TTB dating back to 2009.
TechGlobal’s Joint Venture was initially awarded a contract in 2009 to build the Permits Online (PONL) system for TTB, streamlining old paper applications for alcohol and tobacco manufacturers, importers, and users using the Accela commercial off-the-shelf software (COTS) called Accela Civic Platform. To date, TechGlobal’s implementation at TTB has been the largest and most complex federal application of Accela software. The project also earned TechGlobal the distinction of Treasury small business contractor of the year in 2011.
With this latest contract award, TechGlobal looks forward to further integrating the PONL portal with other enterprise systems at Treasury, including use of Pay.gov for online payments, and improving the user experience for both TTB staff and business owners applying for permits. The PONL project is a vivid example of the power of the customization and automation features in the Accela software suite, as well as the product’s ability to improve public engagement with regulatory agencies.
As a Bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, TTB is responsible for regulating and taxing the alcohol and tobacco manufacturing industries in the United States. The agency collects more than $21 billion in annual tax revenue, making it the third largest source of federal revenue after the IRS and U.S. Customs.
TechGlobal, Inc. is a woman and minority-owned small business based in Rockville, MD serving local, state and federal customers with information technology solutions and professional services. TechGlobal has been an Accela Business Partner since 2006, with a track record of successful Accela implementation, upgrade and maintenance projects.
