Our Canadian client was in the business of repairing mass transit cars. My client – the lowest bidder was wrongly disqualified. Each time I talked to Judy, I went back to the transit authority and had a further conversation about how the competition had been improper and why they needed to re-compete the project.
Finally they re-bid the contract. Our client was awarded the contract - worth over a million dollars that led to many more.
Should you hire her? Absolutely! I think for anyone, whether or not it's worth large dollars, anyone who would like an edge in government contracting, it is her experience with those uniquely Canadian issues, and her contacts, that really count. Read the whole story!

As a result, AirBoss-Defense now has 2 specific sources of potential support to win new business with first responders, and one for advocacy to expand our current US defense contracts.
