CAPITOL ALLIANCE SOLUTIONS management consulting strategic planning dc policy

Capitol Alliance Solutions – leveraging nearly four decades of Washington, D.C. operations / professional experience in the high-tech private and public sectors. 

Many federal consulting firms in the nation’s capital focus primarily on government affairs – helping to navigate clients through the proverbial policy and legislative sausage-making process in the executive and legislative branches.   

Capitol Alliance Solutions, founded in 2005, sets itself apart from these firms by putting the emphasis on “solutions” to its clients’ needs – including both policy and business development challenges. We believe that today’s economic challenges demand that government consultants need to be way more than “time and cost sinks” associated with networking among the key officials, drafting white papers, and related activities.   

As important as these skills are, we also believe that it is critical to combine our policy and regulatory expertise with developing and executing solutions for clients to capture greater share in both the federal and private sector markets.  By helping the client generate income over time, we believe that this is the most effective way of repaying the client for their trust and investment of resources. 

To that end, we leverage nearly four decades of Washington Operations professional experience in the high tech private and public sectors to advance our client’s policy goals while also assisting with their business development/revenue objectives.
