The U.S. government alone distributes a staggering half a trillion dollars in contracts to those who know where to look for opportunities. As private businesses continue to struggle through an unstable economy, public dollars present a lifeline for companies as well as a solid source of economic growth. That’s money you can’t afford to ignore.
But can you get to it? The process is entangled in red tape, and agencies favor work with companies with which they’ve previously done business, potentially locking out newcomers who don’t know how to overcome these obstacles.
We’ve been there. At Cozen O’Connor Public Strategies, we know where to search for and how to identify these opportunities. Our government relations professionals have held procurement positions in government agencies, so they understand the idiosyncrasies of agency procurement processes and the factors that affect purchasing decisions. Our experts know how to mine the most precious opportunities to give you a unique competitive advantage.
Once you opt to pursue a government contract, we work with you to create the most effective and appealing proposal, placing your organization in the best possible light. We understand the shifting dynamics among price, quality, fulfillment, term, and other contract elements that each agency wants to see in a bid or proposal. We also pull from Cozen O’Connor’s government contracts law practice for expertise in the bid protest process and related legal issues. Our strength lies in understanding the procurement process, pulling all the pieces together, and developing short- and long-term strategies that benefit our clients.
