I appreciate the invitation to attend today’s DBE & Buy America Training Session. I felt it was very beneficial to me and well worth my time. You did a great job with your presentation.
The training session was indeed helpful. From an engineer’s/designer’s standpoint seeing how complex and challenging this issue really is, I believe will be helpful in developing specifications and drawing documents which in the end provide sufficient detail along with a narrowed definition of the products and systems which may be procured from a DBE supplier.
Nice job. While I had some familiarity with both BAA and DBE/WBE/MBE, I learned a lot. Gotta agree with you. Your approach, providing candid insight, is a welcomed change. Thanks for taking the time to enlighten us and keep us in synch with the business needs.

I enjoyed the presentation and how it outlined our limitations for some of these contracts. The “real life” examples always help people understand how it really happens!
The presentation was very good. I think it will be an excellent presentation for new personnel, but also a good one to have for a “refresher” session. Good job.
Many thanks for the presentation. It was a complicated subject, simply given and I enjoyed it. I particularly liked the enthusiasm and passion with which it was given.
I found the training session very informative. I have been with this organization for almost 5 years and only lately have I heard of “Buy America.” I was quite surprised to hear that we’ve been doing it for as long as we have. I think it was very beneficial for my staff and me to hear what it is and the details surrounding the importance of compliance and all that goes into the process. Thank you for including us in your training.

I thought the presentation was well worth my time. I understand much better what the BAA and DBE forms are actually used for now.
I feel that you did an excellent job in your presentation. It was well thought out, very well presented and contained very valuable and useful information. Thanks for the info!
I enjoyed the presentation this a.m. very much. You have a great command of the facts and a broad knowledge of the subject. The pace and timing was right on target. Well done.
