Years ago, we set our sights on designing, implementing, and evaluating strategies and programs that protect and improve the quality of life. More than 70 percent of our work supports federal programs, sometimes through federal contract vehicles. But we also have significant depth and breadth of experience in serving commercial clients; state, local, and regional governments; nonprofits and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs); and international organizations. This diversified perspective enables us to have a comprehensive view of the market and trends and helps inform our solutions in every domain.
