A sampling of Joe's accomplishments demonstrates the level and diversity of his experience:

--  Performed a comprehensive review of a major contractor’s cost estimating practices to determine its vulnerability to government assertions of defective pricing; made recommendations that when subsequently adopted greatly decreased contractor’s exposure under government post-award reviews.
