The Franklin Partnership, LLP specializes in helping represent our clients in the defense industry’s needs before the federal government.  From the largest defense contractor to the family owned business, our experience with the federal funding process and Department of Defense has proved beneficial to our clients time and time again.

Due to increasingly restrictive budgets, many companies and non-profits are increasingly turning to the federal government for support. However, in the current fiscal environment, Washington cannot provide funds to satisfy every request. Thousands of entities compete with one another each year for a limited amount of federal funds.

Here at The Franklin Partnership, we work hand-in-hand with our clients to develop a focused, yet comprehensive, message to deliver to representatives in Washington. Specifically, the DoD appropriations process is unique and goes beyond simply seeking the support of your local member of Congress. Our team guides you through the process, from the President’s budget request to congressional committee markup process and through final House/Senate conference proceedings.

Each client is unique in its needs on federal program funding or policy issues. We tailor our strategy to ensure your goals are secured.
