Firstly, as a public-private partnership, TechHelp and the National Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) deliver a high return on investment. Secondly, for every one dollar of federal investment, the MEP national network generates $17.9 in new sales growth for manufacturers and $27.0 in new client investment. In other words, this translates into $2.3 billion in new sales annually. Similarly, for every $1,501 of federal investment, MEP creates or retains one manufacturing job. The NIST MEP Annual Report includes a great summary of system impact.
