Government Contracting

“We met with the utility companies for 11 years trying to bid on contracts. I knocked my head against the wall constantly looking for opportunities and openings to no avail. We signed with CFR & Associates and William Osgood and within 4 months, we were bidding a large utility contract as you have to be invited to bid and won 3 projects. None of that would have happened without CFR & Associates and William Osgood.”
   – Henry Hoffman, President/CEO – Hoffman Management & Construction
