What Our Members Say

by Shelley Hall

Nothing short of exemplary work

“I felt compelled to share my experience working with Troy.  Immediately after speaking with Troy, I knew he was the right person to help me with this solicitation. Over the last couple of weeks, he has produced nothing short of exemplary work, provided valuable insight, and presented quality material to use in our response. I’m very confident we can win this and couldn’t have done it without his help.”

Eric Fitzsimons

Invaluable

Parish Morris, CEO

Incredibly Helpful

“Skyway Acquisition Solutions, LLC. has proven to be incredibly helpful to our organization on any contract related inquiries I have given them. They have been extremely timely and provided back up reference material along with their responses. Skyway’s vast experience with contracts has provided useful advice that clarified the contract questions I have had to date.”

Competitive Advantage

“Being a member of the Skyway Community is a competitive advantage”.

Steve Goldsby, CEO

I Always Get Useful Information

“As a Government sector proposal professional wearing multiple hats from coordinating to writing, I have to be very selective in my time to invest into training and development. I get so many emails from training providers offering free webinars or proposal advice. It often gets hard to sift through all the content as I determine if it will be worth my time to invest.  Skyway is one of just a few organizations that every time I read a blog entry or listen to a webinar/podcast I always get useful information. Additionally, having information from a Contracting Officer’s perspective has transformed the way I do my job. This is reflected in the content I produce from Sources Sought responses to Government proposal submissions. I find it so beneficial to my personal development that I personally invested into my Community membership.”

Bethany Burton, Business Development/Government Proposals
Evergreen Fire and Security

Skyway Helps Us Pursue Opportunities

“Skyway is/was a major player in our ability to pursue contracts and opportunities a company our size would normally shy away from!”

Jim Duffey, CEO
Greytek

Kudos for Small Business Support

“In my continued efforts in trying to promote small businesses, I’d like to offer some kudos to certain entities.  These entities include agencies themselves, consultants, major corporations, and a couple of small businesses achieving huge success through tried and true methods.  So, while my pat on the back may or may not mean much, I can say that the accomplishments of these entities do mean a lot.  Skyway Acquisition Solutions: There are several fantastic consultants out there, but Skyway Acquisitions really brings a lot to the table.  Composed entirely of former contracting officers, the team has brought so much great information and help to the contracting arena.  Notes of interest the Contracting Officer Podcast — it’s free, and it provides amazing, very specific information.  Key point of interest for me was actually in their testimonials; so many of them are local to Skyway — showing a close connection — AND when you look them up, the companies ARE succeeding in the government market.  They are producing, not just obtaining IDIQs.  I also highly enjoy the fact that their goal is to educate throughout the process so that eventually, a contractor will not need them anymore.”

Brings Me Peace of Mind

“Before joining the Skyway Acquisition Community, I relied solely on my 16+ years of knowledge and experience along with what I could find through NCMA and other internet research. I feared that joining the group would be a waste of money; I wouldn’t find value in the resources, and more importantly – I wouldn’t participate in the community. I was wrong.  I navigate the website with ease to find valuable information, communicate on the forum for advice and a deeper understanding of what I know, and enjoy the podcasts and webinars regularly to expand my knowledge.  The community of contracting experts eager to share IS the most beneficial part of joining Skyway. As a small business owner supporting other small businesses in the world of federal contracting, having the Skyway team of experienced resources to back me up and educate me brings peace of mind. I would tell my best friend that Skyway invests in the federal contracting community to improve the process and create partnership.  A phrase to describe Skyway is Ripple Effect!  Skyway enhances the extent of my expertise.  The community enables me to focus on what I do best so that I can help my clients focus on what they do best. Thank you.”

You Guys are a Godsend

“I would first like to say “THANK YOU & YOU GUYS ARE A GODSEND!” I am a new Contracts Specialist (4months) and started my acquisition career as an intern for 2 years. I am already Level II certified but transitioning to a buying office is challenging.  I wanted to get the pre-award experience which is extremely overwhelming for all the reasons you two know so well. Out of my desire to soak up as much knowledge as quickly as impossible, I stumbled across your podcast. It is awesome and I find you two really entertaining. I must have listened to well over half the podcasts so far. Please continue to share your insight and advice especially for us “newbies.”

Contributed Considerably

“It was a great pleasure for me to meet you all and work with your team on this project. It will not be our last project with Skyway. I think it was just a start. You contributed considerably with your thoughtful questions and comments, things that are not limited to proposal preparation. We will definitely keep you posted and will ask for more help.”

Esmaeil-Hooman Banaei, Ph.D., Founder, CEO
Flex Optronix Technologies, LLC

I Recommend the RFP Score

“I recommend the RFP Score to any company targeting the federal market. It simplifies our decision process by helping us quickly decide whether we meet the criteria to compete. It’s a quick decision maker. The RFP Score saves my company a LOT of time and money. It gives us more time to focus on our clients.”

Sean Williams, President
OT9 Design, LLC

I Have the Utmost Respect

“I would definitely recommend Skyway. I have the utmost respect for their expertise and integrity. In addition, as a business owner, they are going to help you be effective, save money and win work…and that’s really what it’s all about.”

Greg Celestan, CEO
Celestar Corporation

Very Capable Skyway Team

“AJ’s Power Source, Inc. (AJPS) is a Veteran Owned Small Business (VSOB) catering to niche Military power applications. In the past, AJPS has catered to tier one government contractors and not directly to DoD contracts. However, when a very specific power supply solicitation hit our sweet spot, we could not let it fall by the wayside. After looking through the 60 page Government RFP, the AJPS team realized that we needed some direction. This direction was provided by the very capable Skyway Acquisition team. As we worked through the solicitation together – AJPS supplying the technical aspects and Skyway Acquisition the written – we quickly realized the help provided by Kevin Jans and his team was necessary to win the contract. And with the extra support provided by Skyway Acquisition, win the contract is just what we did.”

Nigel Pearson, VP of Sales and Marketing
AJ’s Power Source

Kevin’s Knowledge is Superb

“Kevin’s knowledge of government acquisition, contracting, and business processes is superb. Further, he is very easy to work with – innovative, articulate, motivated, trustworthy and personable. His team’s advice and services are very valuable assets to any company looking to expand their business in the federal marketplace.”

Garth Arevelo, President
Lukos LLC

Professionalism and Expertise

“The professionalism and expertise of the Skyway Team has elevated our acquisition and procurement processes, allowed us to mitigate potential risks factors, and increased our proposal production without compromise of quality. Their knowledge, expertise and counsel in government contracting has allowed us to expand our business development strategies, which has resulted in increased opportunities of revenue generation. Access to Skyway’s knowledgeable staff of former Contracting Officers has proven to be very beneficial as we continue to navigate the complexities of the government contracting arena.”

Natalie Bonner, VP, Contracts & Pricing
Visual Awareness Technologies and Consulting, Inc.

Team was Instrumental in Helping

“Kevin and his team at Skyway Acquisition Solutions helped us bootstrap our Bids and Proposals process, in addition to helping guide us through our first real Government proposal in response to an RFP. His team was instrumental in helping us meet the short-term proposal deadline, working through pricing strategies and making sure that all RFP requirements were met with adequate time for iterative reviews and discussion.”

Anthony Quartararo, President & CEO
Spatial Networks

Level of Professionalism was Exceptional

“The level of professionalism was exceptional and the quality of the work was everything we could have hoped for. The follow up and attention to detail were critical to keeping us on track and ultimately resulted in a best in class proposal. I would highly recommend Skyway to anyone who feels a need to engage an outside firm to help with advanced proposal preparation services.”

Jim Levine, President
Regency Technologies

Love the Skyway Community

“As a member of the Skyway Community, I have found the interactiveness of the community to be a very resourceful tool. The Ask a Contracting Officer Forum allows me to get answers to our questions right away in order to more effectively manage my contracts. The FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations) is a very complicated set of regulations. Skyway puts the FAR into terms that are understandable and make more sense.”
