Federal Relations

Federal Areas of Focus

Great shifts in national and global economics and politics have fundamentally altered  the federal political landscape in Washington, DC.  Today, individuals and organizations who seek to understand and influence the legislative and regulatory processes of the federal government face a vastly different set of challenges and opportunities than just a few years ago. In the current environment, successful federal strategies require a more diverse skill-set, one that combines traditional relationship-based advocacy with informed policy analysis and innovative grassroots, grass tops media and public relations capabilities. Our resourcefulness provides a secure pathway through the roadblocks the federal government presents. Bose Public Affairs Group offers a crosscutting array of government relations and public affairs capabilities, with areas of expertise in energy, education, infrastructure, natural resources, appropriations and local governance, among others. Simply put, we provide the agility necessary to succeed in today’s dynamic political atmosphere.
