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!
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
