Dr Doty submitted a stellar proposal that far exceeded any of her competition [and] created an extraordinarily thorough and complete final report.  The report addresses the program's objectives and how those objectives are met, the ways in which the program is implemented and the impact on its audience.  Her writing style is very clear and concise.  Dr. Doty's report provides constructive critique that will assist us in improving the program next year and be useful in fund raising in the future.  In all, I could not have imagine a better fit for our needs.
—Johanna Gorelick, Ph.D., Director, Education Department, Smithsonian Institution/ NMAI

[Written to DOE official] This firm has the expertise, and the grant writer, Dr. Doty, has a proven record of success with award-winning grants...The other vendors were either too busy to take on such a large project with a short turn-around time or they had no background in special education or links to the community.  We feel the strength of their connections and their expertise makes them an ideal consultant and our choice for this project. 
—Bonnie Brown, Superintendent, District 75, New York City Public Schools

Thank you so much for taking the time to put these
[reports] together.  I know they will be really helpful.…Referring to the research proposal that you wrote …There is some really great text in there that I'd like to "lift" if that's OK.
