The Advocacy Center is a unit of the Global Markets section of the International Trade Administration , an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Advocacy Center coordinates U.S. Government (USG) resources and authorities in order to level the playing field for U.S. businesses as they compete against foreign firms for international public contracts, both civilian and defense. The Advocacy Center prioritizes advocacy cases and coordinates commercial advocacy across the government on behalf of U.S. exporters, bidding on public-sector contracts with overseas governments and government agencies. Since its inception, the Advocacy Center has helped hundreds of U.S. companies of all sizes in various industry sectors win government contracts around the world.
