WHAT IS A TPOC?
The acronym "TPOC" stands for Technical Point of Contact. Another phrase that is often used synonymously is "COTR" which stands for Contracting Officer's Technical Representative. A TPOC is responsible for monitoring the technical performance of a contract. A TPOC can also be an excellent champion for a small business and often is the author of topics that appear in SBIR and STTR solicitations.
