We do training for federal agencies and for business: 
Since retiring from both the government and TAI, I have limited my services to training government and small businesses when requested in select classes that can assist employees by improving their skills with Performance Work Statement development as well as the Understanding of Request for Proposals.  I can help private firms decide on how to properly respond to government solicitations or negotiate with the federal government based on an RFP. Courses can be viewed on our "courses" page.

I can provide personalized training classes for your organization in Performance Work Statement (PWS) development. As a former Defense Acquisition University (DAU) contracts professor, and senior contracting officer, I know the pitfalls government and industry make in contracting and these pitfalls can be avoided. I can help you avoid these costly mistakes.  When I teach PWS development, I do so from the Performance Based SOW point of view.

Federal agencies and industry need to know now more than ever how to develop and design a proper Performance Work Statements
 Industry especially needs to know how to avoid mistake having their proposal responses rejected because they did not understand the PWS embedded in the RFP.  Many times small businesses have their proposal responses rejected when simple discussions could have clarified an issue. These are common mistakes of contracting officers and industry.  They are getting worse-not better due to the young and inexperienced contracting officers and an overtaxed workforce.  

TAI and I now operate as a sole-proprietorship registered with SAM.
 Any courses taught will be for professional edification but not qualifying for use by FAI as CLPs. Should you desire this kind of training to boost your employee knowledge of PWS, QASP, RFP or SLA development just call or email me at: 352-812-7353 or send a message to:
