If you’re somebody that doesn’t have a lot of experience with federal contracting, you’re running your own organization and don’t have a lot of resources in terms of people, USFCR gives you the experience. I didn’t know what ‘right’ looked like. So, USFCR provided my website and documents that made my presentation professional. I fit in. I felt like I fit in as far as being competitive. I didn’t have to sit around and do a whole bunch of research which freed me up for other things which was very helpful for me.

– Steven Boodhoo, SkyhawkDroneServices
I worked with PTAC, SBA & SCORE for 5 years and learned more from you John Wayne in 20 minutes than I did in 5 years with all three agencies combined!

John Wayne is the “Einstein” of the government contract process – not only for preparing bids, but also for knowing the process of WINNING bids.
– Mike Lewis, Pahrump Medical Supply
John Wayne is great for educating and providing resources for companies like myself for bidding on federal contracts.
– Mark Mahoney, Bright Language Testing, LLC
John Wayne is one of the most resourceful guys I’ve spoken to, with the federal registration process. John spends time with the individual providing tools that ultimately help the business become knowledgeable with government contracting. The fact that he takes part of his day and has live conversations with US Federal Contractor Registration clients, and walks them through the process, is, in my opinion, rare. Thank you, John, for all of your support.
– Joshua Burgess, Divided Lines, Inc.
John has been the common denominator for not only me but thousands of others in the federal arena. He’s been the man that goes the extra mile to make sure that all of his clients are being taken care of.

You guys are awesome! You did everything right, professionally, and timely, in support of CAMSECO Investigations to garner government contracts. We rarely meet people with great integrity in a lifetime. You are great!
– Aubrey Campbell, CAMSECO Investigations and Security Services, LLC
My only regret is that I did not find them earlier. I have been nothing but pleased with the work they have done for me. They are extremely knowledgeable in the realm of government contracting. I spent a year just getting set up only to find that I was making things much harder than it needed to be. They started with updating my SAM registration, creating a government-friendly web site and helping me with proposals, capabilities statement. I was on the verge of giving up hope of ever successfully bidding on and winning any government contracts. They have changed all of that for me. I look forward to working very closely with them over the next year and watching my bottom line soar.
– Geraldine McMiller, Scoop or Scuttlebutt, LLC
Just got another contract. That’s three in the past week. If you want help or more information on how to bid or work with the federal government, ask anyone on the [USFCR] team.
– Klay South, USA Up Star, LLC
I am very encouraged and optimistic about my experience with US Federal Contractor Registration so far. John Wayne is an excellent teacher, and Angela Armstrong, his assistant, is always pleasant, cheerful, and willing to help.

What more can I say about my friend, John Wayne? We have known each for a few years now, and his customer service is outstanding; his warmth, empathy, and commitment to helping people is bar none; and this man gives 120% of his time and efforts to helping you succeed. He has a group of people around him that has surpassed anything I’ve seen in this industry so far. You can’t go wrong with John.
– Gregory McBride, Organo Gold
John, Gina, and Angela are a great team with a wealth of knowledge. They are always there when you need them. They really have your best interest at heart.
– Michael Paulus, C-Plus Electronics, Inc.
Before I write my review, I need to say something about the “negative” reviews that are found here… Before you do business with a company, learn what they offer and don’t offer. Don’t write negative reviews because you didn’t receive services that the company doesn’t provide. With that said, I’ll proceed. I have had (and continue to have) a great experience with USFCR. Yes, I could’ve done the work myself for cheaper but they made my life significantly less stressful by offering their services. Not only did they complete work that I had already started, they fixed significant mistakes that I had made. This saved me time, money, and embarrassment. I have no less than 4 people (that I know of) who answer the phone and emails without fail if I need them. Would I do business with them again? Absolutely. I still do business with them and don’t see a reason to stop in the foreseeable future. Thank you John Wayne and team for the tremendous support and information that you continue to provide.
– Joshua Shoob, Pelican 1, LLC
My experience with USFCR has been nothing but positive. I think doing some research as to what their services are may help you during the process. They are responsive to my emails and phone calls within 24 hrs or earlier, Gina, Angela, and John have always been willing to help and guide as we move through the process. They are a service that actually has useful resources, such as the open training every day. No matter the level of experience, John will walk you through things step by step. It’s great and really helpful to stay motivated. If you think they are there to do everything for you, then it’s not for you, but if you need good counsel for bids or useful certifications and ways to do things correctly, then its perfect.
– Joseph Kinsey, Pacific Logistics Solutions, LLC
I am completely happy and satisfied with my experience working with US Federal Contractor Registration. I have learned more in the past couple of days than I have in years of working with other federal training programs. The staff is very helpful and friendly. They make you feel like you are part of a team. Really love the program.
– Taiwan Moore, T Moore Enterprises, LLC dba TCM Technology Group
Excellent service!!! Angela Armstrong is very helpful, and John Wayne’s trainings are awesome. I would recommend them to anybody trying to get into federal contracting.

We just recently received our first contract award – woo hoo! Thanks for all the assistance these past few weeks with the YouTube videos and conference calls. It really helped out big time.
– Darren Eby, Chief Procurement Officer, Selkirk Products, LLC
I wanted to take a moment and thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to do a follow- up call with us. We are new to the federal government procurement system, and there is so much to learn about the system that at first it felt overwhelming.There were times that I had no idea what they were requesting on the solicitations and no one to ask for guidance —that is until I discovered you on YouTube. Simply put, your YouTube videos are by far the BEST instructions available for doing business with the federal government. After watching just one of your YouTube videos, I was convinced that we needed to register with your organization if we were planning on being successful in the federal market sector. I must say I have not been disappointed. Your daily group trainings are AMAZING! You often answer my questions before I even ask them. I really enjoy and benefit from hearing the questions and concerns that members of the daily group training session ask each day. I love the fact that you are working on actual current situations and opportunities. Believe me when I tell you that as a small business that is new to this market sector, it is very exciting and motivating to see an actual solicitation on my screen for $1 million and to hear you explain to the business owner, line by line, the small details that must be double checked before submitting. — then you actually suggest that he e-mail the RFQ it to you for review before submitting it. That is AMAZING SERVICE!
— Earline Perrilliat, GVal Investments
John Wayne is totally awesome, and we would not have won our contract without him.
— Letha Beaty, Ceroglass
I have learned a lot from your videos and training. I gracefully appreciate you.

You and your team are the best, and I can’t thank you enough for your tenacity and encouragement as you walked me through the process necessary in landing my first government contract. I am literally blown away and thrilled to be working with the federal government on what will hopefully be many more contracts in the future.
Jason Cribbs and John Wayne helped me organize my proposal and include the correct documentation in it. I wouldn’t have thought this was possible, had I not worked with USFCR. I attended the training sessions and was proactive with my questions, and John was there to help and answer questions related to the contract on which I was interested in bidding. [Submitting a bid was] scary at first, but now that I’ve landed my first contract, I feel like I am able to confidently bid and compete on other small interpretive design projects.

He is professional, upbeat, encouraging, and extremely knowledgeable.” – Letha Beatty, Ceroglass Sales Associate

John has been instrumental in providing clear and concise instructions and recommendations that fosters organizational growth. He is excellent, as it relates to stimulating thought in leadership. I am confident that John brings leadership, organizational maturity, and a complete and thorough understanding of the federal government and how it operates concerning small-, medium-, and large- contractual relationships.
– Henry L. Wolfe, Dallas Fort Worth Logistic Services Freight Broker
John Wayne’s training is phenomenal.
– Jacqueline Threadgill, Senergene Solutions Principal Consultant
When I originally decided to take the daunting step of getting my company, Sophaya, certified to bid on government contracts, I was more than a little anxious. As a small business owner, I have a lean team and limited resources — I couldn’t afford a costly mistake. Preparing bids seemed overwhelming until I teamed up with John Wayne and the rest of the team at USFCR. It’s amazing how much progress we’ve made to-date. We clearly could not have done it without your help.”
– Mari Anne Snow, Owner and President of SophiaThink
Not only is John extremely knowledgeable, but he is patient, practical and available. I really feel he and his colleagues are part of my team and invested in my success. Not only has John helped build my confidence, it really feels like he is my partner in the process. In addition, his body of work, tools and tips – LinkedIn posts, acronym lists and teaching aids – have helped me get my team up to speed as well. I can’t say enough about my experience with John and the rest of the USFCR team. Best money I’ve ever spent.
I’ll be honest — this was a new ballgame for me, and it’s all thanks to US Federal Contractor Registration, especially John Wayne, that I not only won this contract but am confident that there will be others awarded to us in the future. John is a godsend. He possesses a great deal of knowledge and is willing to share and teach – and he has the patience of Job. John is just a wealth of knowledge, and if you don’t understand how it all works together, then you can easily be overwhelmed. He helps put things in perspective and can save you a lot of time just by helping you focus on the parts of the bid notification that are the most important.
– Herb Jones, Principal and CEO, Pyramid Technologies, LLC

The name John Wayne says it all, Honest and Straight Forward. John knows what it means to Persevere and Stay The Course. John is a Great Leader and the best Representative USFCR could have. Both USFCR and John Wayne are of the Highest Principle. We have referred many people and companies to USFCR because of the way John has always taken care of CDFI throughout the years, for this started day one and has never changed. John is very good a matching up companies and their needs as he has referred many to also CDFI better know as CDIFIRST.

John is truly an expert in his field. From initial contact with John I was confident that I had found the assistance that I had been searching for. After only a few short meetings I was extremely impressed at John’s patience, knowledge and persistence at achieving my goals. His knowledge of contracting is extensive, introducing me to area’s of contracting that I had not even considered. He constantly goes above and beyond ensuring my decision to ask him personally for help in contracting was the right choice. I highly recommend that any business looking to win in contracting regardless of which agency ie. govt, private, personal etc. I recommend him whole heartedly.
