“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” – Henry Ford
Government Contract Services, Inc. is comprised of a team of individuals who share in their passion for helping businesses who love closing on government contracts but hate the time and frustrations that go along with it. We want to introduce one of our amazing team members – Renae Baldrey, Customer Service Manager. Here’s a bit about Renae:
What is your favorite part of working with contract holders?
I have the pleasure of working with many contract holders that provide a service or product that essentially delivers care for a customer. It is very neat to learn about a company, and so many hard working individuals who are striving to promote something positive. When assisting to create a successful contract, I can be a part of that growth and positive impact! I also enjoy providing reassurance and productive results during times of urgency.
What part of government contracting do you like the most?
I thrive on caring for others. I make a strong effort to extend that intention throughout my career. I have the opportunity to provide that purpose through the work I complete and conversations with many fascinating individuals who are contract holders and my cohorts.
What is one thing every GSA contract holder should know?
You are not alone! Taking on a contract task can be extremely daunting. This can lead to feeling even more disheartened after receiving rejection files or communications that may not seem clear. Especially after putting in so much effort, please don’t feel defeated. I recommend utilizing Government Contract Services for more than just reaching contract goals. We can provide comfort during times of confusion or when things are just not going the way anticipated.
A big subject that is always spoken about during my daily conversations is pricing support. Be prepared to support a modification with proof. The most effective proof will be recent pricing support in forms of invoices, brochures, quotes, etc. This will keep the process running smooth when proposing a modification.
When you are aren’t working on contracts, what do you like to do?
I am a mother to five beautiful children, two ferrets (Podo and Kodo), two cats (Vincent and Vaughn), two guinea pigs (Oreo and Phoebe), Yoshi the Bearded Dragon, Romeo the mini Australian Shepard, and two very resilient beta fish. Most of my time is spent tending to my family which I sincerely enjoy. However, a good movie and a nap is always appreciated! 😃
