In private practice, recognizing how vastly the Postal Service's procurement environment differed from those of other federal agencies, David developed and presented a variety of seminars on postal contracting. More than 1,000 contractors have attended these seminars. Since 2001, David has annually compiled and published a list of the Postal Service's top suppliers. Recognized as an authority on postal contracting, he is frequently sought-after by the media to comment on postal procurement topics.
