Carmen Group specializes in defense lobbying and consultation for technology companies, universities and healthcare institutions. We help clients navigate federal agencies and the congressional authorization and appropriations process to secure funding and support for new ideas and products that deliver superior capabilities. We help defense agencies understand emerging technologies to create endorsement and sponsorship for our clients’ products and services. This effective use of public-private-partnerships (P3s) has led to Carmen Group representing some of the most highly regarded research initiatives within US military and domestic response agencies.
Beyond traditional defense lobbying expertise, Carmen Group maintains a unique niche in defense healthcare and the intersection of the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services as they interact on domestic preparedness and response capabilities for mass casualty incidents.
Our command of the budget and acquisition processes, decades of collective experience and strong advocacy relationships enable us to establish strong links between government and industry. Our clients’ successes include appropriations, continuing support for current programs and the implementation of technological advances for national defense. Carmen Group’s unique business process has increased our success ratio and sets us apart from other firms in terms of competitive legislative and business results.
