The focus of Georgia Strategy Partners is lobbying, issue management, and policy analysis at the local and state level for our clients. We offer capabilities within government affairs and lobbying in order to effectively advocate important public policy issues with elected officials and key staff. Our methodology has advanced the image of our clients with key decision makers locally and on the state level.
Georgia Strategy Partners know clients are more likely to achieve their desired goal when they have a positive image in the community. Whether a corporation, small business, or non-profit group we work with our clients to create a community engagement strategy that is beneficial to the company and the communities they serve. These strategic choices help guide their future. Recently, GSP partnered with a nonprofit organization to help roll out an initiative to provide walking trails and paths in the community. The process included stakeholder meetings with elected officials, landowners, and citizens. This coordinated effort has lead to the design of a network of trails that is not only the desires of our non-profit client, but the communities impacted as well.
We help our clients meet key decision makers, understand the procurement process, assist with developing responses to RFPs and find potential partners. GSP acts as an effective business development partner for our clients. Recently, we assisted a small business client successfully bid on state and local contracts for becoming a transportation service provider.
