“The AE worked under a shorter-than-usual schedule. They made extra efforts to produce more than what was expected for the first two interim submittals in anticipation for the upcoming holiday season. Although the government, about 3/4 of the way into the project, revised some information that made it very difficult to complete the project on-time, the AE was accommodative and worked closely with the Government to devise a way to deliver the documents as scheduled.”
