Government Contracts Subject Matter Expert Services

Owner/Chief Consultant

Greetings:

Please consider the enclosed information and determine if your organization could use our SME services to either further your business aspirations, assist you with resolving threats to the business (current or impending), being a team member on a current or upcoming project, and/or provide you with consulting services to fill in gaps within the organizations’ skill set inventory which may be temporarily missing. Or you may simply want someone of my caliber available to the organization, someone who has played with the large companies and what makes them winners and losers – numbers, relationships, transparency, and business acumen.

My attached credentials are impeccable, and as a Defense/Aerospace professional, I bring to the table 40+ years combined knowledge, skills, and abilities in audit, compliance, financial management, and contracts/subcontracts management. In addition, I hold a bachelor’s degree in accounting, an MBA in finance, and two certifications.

Located in a small bedroom community outside of Houston, I operate a small, veteran, minority business which assist companies with the resolution of issues or implementing proactive strategies in support of their government contracts.

I believe you will find the quality of service offered at the hourly rate we propose is reasonable compared to other management consulting firms offering similar services. NOTE: I am only interested in 1099 or temporary W-2 work. Thanks for the consideration in advance.

Sincerely,

20111 Stonepine Creek Drive • Tomball, TX 77375-7553 Cell: 202-***-**** • FAX: 832-***-**** • Voicemail: 832-***-**** ac9crn@r.postjobfree.com
