"John was very helpful and provided excellent guidance when asked to consult on and review a number of state contract monitoring reports issued by programs under his purview. He demonstrated an ability to understand which findings rose to the level of warranting further scrutiny, and which potential findings were better left omitted. He very clearly and concisely drafted language putting contractors on notice, and explaining the remedial measures that would be necessary to complete."
