"I have been a COR on many contracts in my 14 years with the VA. And I honestly have to say that this Vendor/Contract has been the best experience I have had. The two staff they hired locally to manage the Warehouse in rural WI have been outstanding contract staff to work with. Things are completed timely and without error. They are always professional and have always strived to improve the inventory management of our stock of PPE and Equipment."

"On the afternoon of Friday, April 13th, it became apparent that Purell hand sanitary refills required to support the Kennedy Space Center Family Day were not on hand. This is a specialized product that is not normally stocked nor readily available on shelves. However, VSS was able to locate and willing to drive to Jacksonville, Florida, to deliver the product in the late evening. VSS’s same day outstanding support and teamwork allowed URS to fulfill its obligation to NASA without impact to Family Day.”
