“We would like to express our appreciation for the invaluable help you provided during the proposal preparation. Recalling that with the multiple stage bids we prepared and submitted eleven major proposals in this effort, it is especially gratifying to reap some of the rewards for the struggle. Without your assistance, however, i’m not certain we could have ever succeeded.”

“As you already know, both Lee McCormick and Larry McCray did a great job and have made an impact on how TM&LS will do proposals going forward….. When our Israeli consultants were here doing their final review I put Larry on the spot to brief his Master Work Program Plan (IMP) and Master Work Program Schedule (IMS) and related documents (WBS, List of Deliverables, Product Tree Structure). On their out brief comments to Tom Walmsley, TM&LS’s GM and his staff they specifically called out Lee’s compliance matrix and Larry’s work and stated it was the best and most comprehensive plan they had seen in their 30 + years of procurement experience. Tom’s response to them was initially “Who is that ?”, then we explain they were the CADRE Consultant’s and his response changed to “Oh yeah, those are the PROFESSIONALS we bring in on important proposals when the job has to be done right.”
