GGA Provides Expertise, Strategic Thinking, & a Commitment to Success

Gephardt Government Affairs (“GGA”) was founded on the belief that affecting public policy requires more than the ability to open doors – it demands policy expertise, strategic thinking, and a deep commitment to success. With more than three decades of policy-making experience, our bipartisan team helps clients achieve winning outcomes.

GGA’s professionals offer decades of expertise in a wide range of issues and interests and represent clients from a full range of industries and backgrounds, including:

Senior Leadership & CEO Advising


GGA has unique skills and experience working on federal procurement policies and opportunities for our clients. Our professionals have served as procurement counsel in the private and public sectors: as senior executives of contracting firms, political appointees and career program managers in federal agencies, and as senior staffers on congressional committees with oversight of major procurements. This gives us a comprehensive understanding of federal contracting from both the business and agency perspectives.

We help with long-range business development planning, identifying opportunities and obstacles, to best position our clients to win contracts. When targeting procurements, we help clients access senior decision makers within federal agencies and on the Hill. And we help when our clients face an unjustified procurement loss, by developing and executing a strategy to complement a formal bid protest to secure a fair award. We understand that our job is to help clients grow their bottom-line.
