Client Stories

A client success story from Alfredo Zennamo, the CEO of Genesis Disposables, LLC.

We specialize in manufacturing hospital gowns, exam shorts, urology exam products, and various medical supplies for both commercial clients and different units within the United States Department of Defense. There was a significant opportunity when we were bidding on a contract to supply Tyvek coveralls to a U.S. Navy Command in Philadelphia, PA. 

Client: Alfredo Zennamo

However, one crucial requirement was compliance with the Buy American Act, specifically FAR 52.225-1, which stipulates that at least 60% of the product's cost must come from components made in the United States. The challenge was that purchasing American-made materials would have driven up our costs, potentially making our offer uncompetitive. That's when I turned to Mr. Michael Vecchio for guidance. 

Client Story

Michael advised us to respond to the solicitation by committing to a "good faith effort" to meet the Buy American Act's requirements through negotiations with U.S. textile suppliers.  Michael's assistance was instrumental in helping us win the contract. He meticulously analyzed the complex requirements of FAR 52.225-1, Buy American-Supplies, and guided us in crafting a response that not only adhered to the legal aspects but also positioned us competitively in the government contracting landscape.  His expertise was invaluable in navigating the intricacies of government procurement, ultimately leading to our success in securing the contract.
