Was it worth my time? Absolutely. I have heard of DBE and Buy America, but have not really been given any training on how complex the subjects are. The training was extremely helpful to me for making decisions as an IE can directly affect DBE and possibly Buy America. The training has given me another tool that I can reference to make smart decisions.
I thought the topics were relevant to all of our jobs and the presentation was useful. It was the right length and right level of detail. You did a good job explaining the regulations in language we could all understand. The examples helped.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.
