I just wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for all of your help. I’ve been in business since 1991. I remember when SAM used to be CCR. I had set myself up in the system all by myself, with no help from anyone. For years I had no problems or issues. THIS year, however, was when I discovered I had major issues going on within SAM because of incorrect data I had entered. This all came to light due to the fact I had lost a $5k order that was with the government. The DLA person contacted me and said, I cannot award you this because you are big business. I said no, I am not! Well, sure enough, I was showing up within the system as being woman owned, but large business. That is when I started making phone calls and trying to get anyone to help me figure this out. I felt like I was going down a rabbit hole, because at each turn, I had to do something else. I finally was able to get in contact with V-PTAP and was issued a counselor. I remember the first time Michele came out to visit. We thought it would be an easy fix, but it turned out to be a BIG mess! We could not get in to fix or change the things that needed to be fixed. Requirements had changed within the system. Michele helped me figure out what changes needed to be made, helped me with my self-certification with the SBA and to follow the instructions for the new information that was requested. We FINALLY get to the end and still could not get resolve. Thanks to Tom, for helping us figure out a few things and he went above and beyond to help get this show on the road! Michele was able to come back last Friday and everything went fine! Everything has been corrected and submitted and I am waiting on the SAM update for my status. In all my dealings with the government and all the hoops one must jump through, between Michele and Tom’s combined efforts, I take my hat off to them! I’ve never had anyone help me like they have! I truly appreciate it! Michele, I appreciate your input, your insight and your patience with me! If I had to give you a star rating it would be 10 stars!!!

I just wanted to share a quick note and let you know that you guys do a really good job. I’m glad I decided to work with you. It’s really great and easy to become PTAP client. Our SAM account is activated and HUBZone application is in process. In addition, our new PO is in process as well. Thanks

Finally we are showing as ‘Active’ on SAM.
We were in a bind with our SAM Registration renewal and we have been trying all different avenues to resolve this problem for last two weeks, however nothing seemed to be working. On a cue from our SBA office, we contacted PTAP and the responsiveness and effort from your end to get this resolved within a day’s time is really appreciable. We acknowledge your help in getting this resolved so quickly. And truly feel like we are a team!

Allison and I met with Michele McCoy beginning in January 2018 concerning beginning our voyage into the Government Contracting World as an SDVOSB. With your guidance, 1 Acquisitions LLC has won almost 130k in awards in just a little over 3 months! We are currently pursuing a bid that the total value is 260k. We have called on you at all times, and you have always been there for us with advice and reassurance. When we first started, we were afraid to bid on anything but with a gentle push from you we were on our way and won the first bid we submitted. I wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your help. We could not have done it without you.

I want to say how happy I am with my PTAP representative, Linda Owen. She has been a mentor and a constant support to me. I have been very successful in the 8(a) and woman-owned small business programs because of her guidance. Recently I met with Linda concerning the HubZone program. She engaged and educated me about the HubZone program and due to her guidance we have decided to go after our HubZone Certification. Linda Owen is a true asset to the PTAP program and we wish that everyone PTAP had a representative like her.
