In today’s competitive environment, businesses must take advantage of every opportunity in the public affairs arena. Eric Wright & Associates has a proven record of creating competitive advantages for its clients in the Texas legislative environment. Many corporations and associations are discovering the benefits derived from the expertise offered by Eric Wright & Associates.

Government Relations Strategies

Developing strategic plans for legislative and regulatory initiatives requires skill and experience. We employ a variety of approaches to formulate a customized plan to achieve desired results. The solution may dictate a legislative change, an agency rule change or both. Each situation has it’s distinctive set of characteristics that warrants professional analysis to determine the best strategy for success.

Legislative Advocacy

We offer a full range of advocacy services to address complex issues facing corporations and associations. Our services include access to decision makers, navigation of the state legislative and budget process, interim and session committee monitoring and management of a client’s political activities. A unique combination of these services is tailored to address individual client needs.

Communications & Public Relations

Some initiatives are most effective with the added components of coalition building, grass roots development, and media relations. Eric Wright & Associates is equipped to provide powerful communication tools to promote public awareness and heighten visibility. Communication with clients is also a top priority. Daily news clips on related events, informal e-mail updates, conference calls and a session newsletter on legislative activity are additional client benefits.

Procurement

Business development through the promotion of products and solutions to the state of Texas requires key agency contacts and a comprehensive understanding of the history and prevailing climate at each agency. The highly competitive procurement process necessitates that corporations spend a great deal of time cultivating relationships with agency decision makers. Corporations must be thoroughly educated on the state procurement process and must cater their RFP solutions to the needs of the agency and the legislature.

Research

Uncovering the facts and figures to support a project can be a daunting task when dealing with governmental entities. Eric Wright & Associates utilizes dozens of resources to assemble data and present the findings in a cohesive, persuasive package. Research related to appropriations, statutes, administrative rules, agency budgets and operating plans supplies the vital background information and statistics for legislative and agency proposals.
