Our Founding Fathers bestowed
the Congress with "the sole power of the federal purse."
Members and staff enjoy the exercise of that power
by directing funding.
Keller McIntyre's successful approach has always been
to pursue funding from both the Congress and the Administration
simultaneously. On the legislative side, we work to
include language in appropriations and authorization
bills that support our clients' funding requests.
On the Executive Branch side we work to secure dollars

Keller McIntyre puts our clients in the pathway of
federal dollars. The question is, is your organization
or corporation maximizing its federal support?
Archimedes famously said, "Give
me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place
it, and I shall move the world."
Businesses and nonprofits alike can grow only through
leverage. And Keller McIntyre professionals use the
federal government as the fulcrum.
Washington is the decision-making capital of the free
world with an annual budget of approximately $4
trillion. We build upon relationships with public
officials and utilize our knowledge of the legislative,
regulatory, contracting and procurement processes
to help our clients grow their bottom lines.
"If you want a friend in Washington,
buy a dog," President Truman famously said. Respectfully,
"Give 'em hell, Harry" was wrong. The inner workings
of the Nation's Capital are built on relationships
- much like a small community. Without strong relationships
in this small, highly competitive town it is impossible
to achieve your federal objectives. Keller McIntyre
utilizes the strong relationships its professionals
have established throughout the past two decades to
accomplish important objectives across the federal

could get in front of top decision-makers in Washington,

if you had dedicated staff in Washington to drive
all of the follow-up work and press for your goals?
