To keep moving forward, sometimes you have to follow.
Pro-lab, over the years, has worked with and done business with many different government agencies including the Centers for Disease Control CDC , FDA, USDA, NIH, and NASA to name a few. While I’ve heard many stories about working with the government (most of them bad), for Pro-Lab, interacting with government agencies has been a very positive experience.
Simply follow their instructions and everything works out as it should. But if you try to modify anything, the process suddenly stalls or gets very complicated. It’s hard not to push back against their "guidance" as it doesn’t make sense to non-agency types like us. That’s because we aren’t working with the same information as they are. However, if we try to see the really big picture of what a government agency has to work with and we try to follow their lead, it all becomes clear and you can keep moving forward.
Most of the time they really do want to help.
