Leveraging Resources

TAP ANNUAL REPORT

FY 2021

The Purdue University Technical Assistance Program (TAP) provides high-value solutions to increase the productivity of Indiana’s state and local governments and increase the profitability of businesses, both in Indiana and around the world. TAP affiliated services and organizations include; TAP40, cyberTAP, Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), and Purdue Healthcare Advisors (PHA). Each group utilizes Purdue staff, faculty, and students to provide world-class consultation and education to organizations across the state.

TAP has leveraged the state’s initial investment by more than seven times this year alone. FY2020-21 has been uniquely challenging due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but TAP has found novel and innovative ways to continue multiplying value across Indiana.

Successes

Amplified

This year was uniquely challenging. The pandemic caused a significant and lasting disruption to how TAP interfaces and interacts with our clients. Despite the challenge, TAP accomplished great things: TAP performed 163 on-site cybersecurity risk assessments for Indiana businesses, secured over $3.4MM in grant funding to combat healthcare inequalities and the current healthcare crisis, provided Hoosier companies with over 1,720 hours of consultation services with Purdue faculty and staff, and contributed over $500MM in economic impact through consulting and training services to Indiana manufacturers.

IMPROVEMENTS

DELIVERED

Over the coming year, TAP will continue to amplify the state’s investment and support legislative priorities through critical grants and new programs. We continue to build entrepreneurship in Indiana by offering businesses up to 40 hours of free consultative services with Purdue faculty and experts. While TAP continues to support Hoosiers during the current public health emergency, we are also looking past COVID-19 to reduce health disparities with the Indiana Healthy Opportunities for People Everywhere initiative. TAP is focused on preparing and organizing Indiana businesses to meet the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and improve the cybersecurity posture of Indiana’s local governments and K-12 schools through the award of a new NSA NCAE-C grant. Finally, TAP is leveraging increased federal funding and providing more economic impact across Indiana’s manufacturing sector with new and increased grants from NIST National MEP Network. This includes an increase in direct support of the defense industrial base through the Indiana DIB Capability Accelerator Program (IDCAP).
