Hi all,

The RETAIN TA contract went to AIR. Jennifer, is this the team you bid with?

[MODERATOR NOTE:  Sadly, no.  Personally, I've never heard of them.  Let's look them up!  Full name is American Institute for Research.  https://www.air.org/.  JHChristian.]

This seems to me to be a very curious selection, based on the AIR website.

We agree, and were very surprised. We thought our partnership with Maher&Maher (DOL TA contractor), NDI (ODEP TA contractor) and over 20 RTW/SAW Subject Matter Experts (I believe only 1 of whom had even been contacted by any other bidders, by the way) was very compelling. We have asked for a debrief, which might shed some light on this...

Just looked at their site. The Principal Researcher's background was working for the DOL. Starting to make sense now?
