In the years that I have been working with Robert Albrecht, he has proven to be one of the most productive, reasonable and reliable auditors I have ever worked with. He takes his time analyzing the audit conditions at HQ and mission level before the audit to ensure that the time spent at our facilities is productive and can be 100% dedicated to the important task of finishing a reliable, complete audit in a timely manner
