Dear Phil,

I would like to take this formal opportunity to thank you and your team for the outstanding job your company performed at Rider University over the last seven months. Without your personal diligence and dedication this project would not have been completed on time and in a very professional manner.

As you know, this undertaking represented many significant technology deployments. Some of these included over 8,200 trench feet of underground structure and manholes along with copper, multi-mode and single-mode fiber optic cable, and a broadband CATV network. This along with wiring over 3,600 voice and data locations and 1,600 CATV locations in 37 existing buildings brought the Rider University community to a position to have a platform that will make them appealing for students will into the next century.

Your coordination with the Bell Atlantic Meridian Systems on the largest fiber optic remote PBX deployed in this country and also Integration Specialists, Inc., the CATV vendor made completion, even with a very aggressive schedule, successful. OCG resolved issues in a timely manner with the other subcontractors and the customer throughout the project. OCG employees on the team were sensitive with the special conditions that prevail with a facility that was operating during the project and conducted themselves accordingly.

Please convey my thanks to your entire team as I thoroughly enjoyed working with them on this project and hope your organization will be involved on Bell Atlantic Network Integration's future endeavors.
