Government Procurement

The many facets of government offer myriad business opportunities for corporations with the right qualifications, but a lack of access to decision makers often presents an insurmountable obstacle.  Our experience and depth of relationships allows us to position skilled corporations to make their case before the governmental entities that need their services the most.  Additionally, our continuous monitoring of key agencies and departments gives us real-time knowledge of their needs before a public request for proposal is issued.   

Grassroots and Grasstops Engagement

As a consultant to over twenty-five state, federal, and local campaigns as well as a regional director for the George H. W. Bush for President Campaign and the Republican National Committee, Jay Morgan has experience in directing strategic campaigns that is unparalleled for its longevity among Georgia-based public affairs consultants.  As the youngest Executive Director of a Republican Party organization in the country in his home state of Georgia, he applied grassroots and telemarketing strategies for the first time in Georgia and oversaw the effort to triple the party’s donor base at a critical time in its development.  With then-GOP Chairman Paul Coverdell, he engineered the Georgia GOP’s first algebraic targeting system for state legislative races, which identified vulnerable incumbents and winnable open seats. 

Legislative Advocacy

Government is a complex and cumbersome world to understand.  We have the relationships, expertise, and attention to detail that is required to ensure that your interests are represented throughout all levels of government.  Identifying, informing, and building relationships with key influencers is a cornerstone of our process.  In particular, our firm specializes in state level legislative advocacy at the Georgia General Assembly; for twenty years, the J.L. Morgan Company has provided corporations, coalitions, candidates, and business associations with solid strategic plans for execution of government affairs tactics.  To effectively demonstrate the important role that businesses play in legislators' districts and throughout the state is essential to building champions and establishing the credibility of an organization among policymakers.  Oftentimes this can be achieved through on-site visits that give officials the opportunity to speak with employees in their district and see an organizations' value added to the community up close and personally.  Below are photographs from legislative visits and tours that the J.L. Morgan Company has facilitated over the past few years.
