A business assistance center at Madison Area Technical College helped Wisconsin companies secure $292.3 million in government contracts in 2005, a 42 percent increase over last year's record.

Innocorp. in Verona used the center to help it get a contract with the U.S. General Services Administration for sales of its Fatal Vision goggles, which simulate different blood alcohol levels for alcohol training programs. The GSA contract - getting one essentially certifies a vendor as a good risk - lets companies do business with government agencies for individual sales of up to $25,000, up from the $2,000 sales possible without such a contract.

Innocorp. president Mike Aguilar said MATC's Business Procurement Assistance Center streamlined the process of applying for the contract.
