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.

Very good presentation. Clear, precise, to the point.
I had no idea about Buy America and didn’t know all about DBE either. The meeting was very knowledgeable and I thought very well organized as far as how you went into details and made it very easy to listen too. Most informational meetings that I’ve attended lack the personal touch that you incorporated.
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.
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.
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.
It was a pleasure to attend this training. I commend you on a job well done. You are a natural presenter and the message was clear and very informative. I took a LOT away from the class. Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend.

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.
Nice job on presentation, even with my experience in both subjects, I found the presentation interesting and even learned something new. Thanks!
I thought the training was very useful. I have only been here since the 1st week in August but I have heard Naomi and Deb talk about Buy America. The more the entire organization knows about the process the better chance of positive results.
