I thought the presentation was well worth my time. I understand much better what the BAA and DBE forms are actually used for now.
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.
I thought that you did a great job with your presentation. You made good time with all the information that you gave. It is good that you give this to all departments along the Supply Chain, for it makes everyone understand the importance and justify why we do what we do.
Thank you for the class! Since I was still mulling over thoughts I had during the class this morning, I would say that it was very well worth the time and effort! I am thinking of ways to keep a running tab on BAA and DBE value during the quotation process. Thank you for the insight on how important these regulations are to our company.
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 your workshop was very well done. I think it should be mandatory for everyone who deals with bids, purchasing, and marketing or directly with our suppliers.
I thought you did a good job covering such complex subjects, especially for persons having no exposure to these regulations. Your past efforts to educate union leadership were a good idea. Having rank and file understand, at least in a basic way, is beneficial.

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.
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.
Thanks for taking time so late in the day to give your presentation to our visitors from Paris. It was also a nice refresher for me. This gave me a renewed perspective on the requirements. I am anxious to work more closely with you going forward to investigate potential DBEs.
