I have worked closely with Chuck for over 20 years during his tenure at Unisys and Xerox/ACS on several major procurements involving complex legal and business issues.  Chuck’s business acumen and understanding of Florida’s procurement processes are impressive – he is indeed a leader in the field of public procurement.   Chuck has an acute sense of doing the right thing to insure a level field and that the state is receiving fair value.  I would highly recommend Chuck as a consultant to any firm interested in doing business with the State of Florida.
