Their performance was exemplary and it is noteworthy that they exceeded all expectations in the administration and handling of the contract requirements. All paperwork was thorough, completed on time, and accurate. The responsiveness from VEI Solutions was superb. Without the cooperation of Ryan and his team, we would have not been able to meet our goals in the satisfactory completion of this project. We would not hesitate to re-contract with them when the situation arises, and they are definitely the MBE that it pays to work with.”
