Was informed of your organization and am interested in how I can become part of the team and how VOB108 can assist in growing my business.

I clicked “Yes” in teh last three (3) blocks above (GSA, Capabilities and CCR), but am unfamiliar with what they mean.  Other than I have experience with GSA working as a Projet Engineer for the construction of a Federal COurthouse in Covington, KY several years ago.

Thank you KJ
