    To Whom It May Concern:

    Testimonial letter.Testimonial letter.

    When we decided to bid on a BOS contract, we just weren't sure if we would be able to get it all done. We were not strangers to government contracting, but as it turned out, the requirements on this particular response were more extensive, complex and the response time was shorter than anything we had ever seen before. On one of our consultant's (Cathy Robinson's of CME) recommendation, we brought Tom Petruska of Contracts Unlimited on board as a team member for the response.

    On this project, Tom's main focus was pricing. He helped us develop our formulas for labor burden and overhead, and built us a spreadsheet to compile the data for over 1,000 individual pricing line items, and to feed those totals into the officially formatted response document. The attention to detail required for this task was tremendous, and considering the added pressure of the time constraints, Tom did a phenomenal job. In addition to pricing, Tom provided support on other aspects of the RFP requirements and helped us keep our response compliant.

    Tom's extensive experience in government contracting is evident in the work he does. His calm demeanor and positive attitude is a great fit for high-pressure deadline-directed project. He was able to come on board, fit in and adapt to work with our team and produce an excellent product in a timely manner. We learned so much from Tom, who shared his extensive knowledge and experience with us. We would highly recommend Tom.

    Only time will tell if we wrote a winning bid, but we feel confident that, with Tom's help, were able to provide an excellent response with solid pricing.

  • WGC Washington Consulting Group INC.

    To Whom It May Concern:

    Testimonial letter.WCG decided to obtain a GSA MOBIS Schedule in order to increase revenue and to diversify the base of business. Since WCG had no experience working with the Schedules Program, we asked Tom Petruska with Contracts Unlimited, Inc. to help us with the project. Using his expertise, Tom worked with WCG staff to obtain the necessary information, and he prepared and submitted the proposal to GSA and led the negotiations with the Contracting Officer. Following negotiations, the contract was signed and eventually a large Task Order was executed. Since WCG did not have the staff or experience to obtain the GSA Schedule contract, Tom's knowledge enabled us to receive the contract award and obtain new business.

    Re: Department of Veterans Affairs Center for Verification and Evaluation (VA CVE)

    Dear Mr. Peruska,

    Testimonial letter.On behalf of Paragon Communications Solutions, Inc. (PCSi), I would like to thank you for your support of our VA CVE filing.

    As a very small business, we did not have me time, nor resources to cull through the myriad documents required for the application process. With your help,we were able to pull together the required information, submit it as one package, and receive our verification rating in a short amount of time.

    Your extensive knowledge of the process and of the requirements was critical in our submission. As we all know in business. sometimes it's ok to "answer the mail” but most often you get better results when you understand what the intent of the request is, what are they looking for in your response. You provided that understanding.

    We received our “verified” status on 20 October 2015. Having your support,diligence, and knowledge of the entire application process was the only reason wereceived our verification. We could not have done it without you. Thank you very much!

    To Whom It May Concern:

    Testimonial letter. We had an opportunity to prepare and submit a quotation under a GSA Schedule contract for our solar panel array product to the US Government. At the time, we had little experience with the preparation of quotes so we hired Contracts Unlimited (CU) to assist us with final review. CU made several suggestions to ensure the quote complied with the US Government acquisition regulations, and we won the contract! In addition, to sound advice regarding quote submission, CU drafted us a comprehensive Suppliers Agreement that we use with our many vendors to protect our interests. Further, Contracts Unlimited flawlessly guided us through the negotiations with our vendors to enter into the Supply Agreement prepared by CU. Contracts Unlimited was a zealous advocate for us during these critical negotiations and still is today! CU’s extensive experience in government contracts put us on the right path and has secured our position as the leading solar system provider to the United States Marine Corps.

    We would most enthusiastically recommend Contracts Unlimited to any firm that needs proposal and contractual support.
