Bare Root Contracting, LLC located in Fayetteville is a "Service-Disabled Veteran
Owned Small Business" specializing as a general contractor and project management
Their staff of four handles remodeling projects, home improvement jobs - including
outdoor entertainment areas as well as managing projects that clients may already
have underway. After a business name change and revamp, this is their third year in
business as Bare Root Contracting, LLC.
Owner Doug Albert learned of the services offered by Arkansas Procurement Technical
Assistance Center (PTAC) by attending a few government contracting courses taught
by PTAC counselor Max Franks in northwest Arkansas. Albert became a PTAC client in
In December 2019, the company was awarded a state government contract with a retirement
home. The contract consists of repainting the interior in its entirety. The home features
16 and 20-foot ceilings so they’ll be spending extensive time on scaffolding.

“If a business tries to accomplish government contracting without the assistance of
PTAC and a counselor like Max Franks, I think they would fail,” Albert said. “Max

Arkansas PTAC congratulates Bare Root Contracting, LLC on their government contracting
success and wishes them continued success in the future.
