Not that it means much but, I've never heard of them.

Potomac Group was around 15+ yrs ago and run by Pete Dordal and another guy who went on to work for the HP CEO. FYI

Pete sold company some time ago and went on to be quite financially successful. I think he's working out of UAE now.

Why are you asking about this company? Need a capability in the locations they service? I may be able to reccomend others.

My wife was offered a per diem position teaching Forensics, Latent Print Analysis, and Investigation to various LE agencies OCONUS. There are a few significant red flags for me.

1. They seem to really want to know her shirt size so they can send her a company polo.

2. They stated to her that transportation from hotel to worksite would be provided by a US Embassy. They are a supposed DoD contractor.

3. Not one single job description can be found. It is all being done by a clerk via email.

4. Pay is $50 per hour with no talk of repatriation. She/we incur lodging costs. So it could actually cost us for her to work there if they do not reimburse as they stated they would.

It all may be legit, but at this point, with they lack of ringing endorsement here, and SB saying he can recommend others, while I may be reading him wrong, I think that tells me all I need to know.

Thanks all.
