Elcon Corporation Estimating & Marketing Publications
    — WSDOT Active Traffic Management System (ATM) Response to RFQ – Editor
        Working with key stakeholders within and outside the company, I assessed the RFQ for required responses, assigned content delivery deadlines, and tracked edits and revisions. Prior to the delivery deadline I worked with the team in Oakland to polish and proof the successful submission on this $34M bid.
        In accordance with reporting requirements, I also ran and documented the company’s minority owned outreach efforts to ensure small and disadvantaged businesses had adequate opportunity to submit a sub-bid.
