“I just want to commend you and your staff for assistance in preparing proposals for the US DOE CarbonSAFE program. Quite simply without their help we could not have done this. We were all so impressed, not just with the coordination aspect, but also with input  toward the narrative structure to address the proposal requirements.
I doubt these proposals could have even been submitted without the help of the OPD. We had a relatively short turn-around, and with the withdrawal of an essential partner almost at the 11th hour, we really had to scramble and we only got it done with your help.”
