    Coalition Development

Advocus understands this well and has developed an expertise in coalition management. When managing campaigns, Advocus relies on lessons learned in our political and lobbying work.

  • Grasstops & Grassroots Mobilization

    Grasstops & Grassroots Mobilization

    Our national network of organizers gives us the ability to find supporters across the country, and our experience as campaign managers helps us bring together stakeholders and merge their competing agendas into a winning campaign. We build coalitions that impact debates. Even in the age of the Internet and social media, Advocus has found that letters, phone calls and personal communications from prominent constituents remain one of the most effective ways to persuade undecided lawmakers and their senior staff.

    As part of its grasstops practice, Advocus recruits influential validators in targeted communities and mobilize them to share their story. Grasstops is one way to ensure your likely and unlikely allies are speaking on the big issues before Congress and the states.

We also provide strategic relationship mapping, opposition research, and social listening services to ensure you have all the data you need to succeed.

  • Government Markets & Procurement

    Government Markets & Procurement

    Government spending and investment in infrastructure and technology systems is at an all-time high, fueling rapid growth in private sector areas for government contracting with hundreds of billions of dollars in investments and grants. Governments depend on a wide array of private contractors to provide the program management, hardware, software, manpower, technology, and solutions needed to deliver on their mission.

    Unfortunately, the government procurement and grant process is infinitely complex, presenting challenges to even the most sophisticated vendors. Few government affairs and consulting firms understand this landscape as well as Advocus. We come from government – we helped run these agencies and systems that fund and administer billions of dollars of federal, state, and local programs. We know the people, the process, and the pitfalls. We can help you navigate the byzantine process – and often the politics – of government procurement.
