 Dawson is highly experienced with federal legislative and funding issues, especially for projects involving Army Corps of Engineers

The public sector consists of governments and all publicly controlled or publicly funded agencies, enterprises, and other entities that deliver public programs, goods, or services.  Often, their ability to deliver is dependent upon navigating complex federal regulatory or federal funding authorization/appropriation processes.


Dawson & Associates has a long history of assisting agencies with new project authorizations, required annual funding of multi-year projects and timely approval of all required permits, especially for projects that involve Army Corps of Engineers permits that impact Waters of the United States.


Federal project authorization and funding rules are lengthy, complicated and a major challenge to government agencies charged with reviewing projects and securing funding.  Delays become expensive when local matching funds are not used because federal funds are not available and project momentum slows.  Contract costs can quickly escalate if they are not funded efficiently.


Dawson & Associates is highly experienced with federal legislative and funding processes.  Working closely with our clients, we develop efficient project schedules and establish communications processes between our clients and key government agencies.  Dawson & Associates will also ensure that required documents thoroughly address all agency requirements and assist with timely resolution of policy and procedural issues.
