1: firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values.
At McAleese & Associates, P.C., we know that without integrity, our work would have no substance, and we have, since our founding in 1992, adhered to a strict code of ethics that leaves nothing to chance and everything to upholding our model of excellence in fair dealings.
We offer our clients and their customers full disclosure and honest communications. We strive to constantly and consistently uphold our ability to bring parties together to work toward a positive and fair resolution, with all parties knowing that transparency is our goal.
But we don’t stop there; our business model and promise to our clients extends to three additional factors that we believe are critical to any successful partnership: value; a belief that a contract signals the beginning—not the end; and a dedication to long-term service and goodwill.
Return on Investment
McAleese & Associates knows that organizations are seeking business for one primary reason: a strong return on investment (RoI). So we make it our mission to develop and create strategic solutions that are designed to do exactly that. How do we do it? We work with our clients to identify their corporate objective, craft a solution to achieve that objective, and decisively execute a strategy at appropriate Federal government offices.
We believe that unifying major institutional "stakeholders" maximizes the probability of:
- capturing profitable new business;
- protecting key programs;
- protecting (or advocating for restructuring where necessary) mergers and acquisitions; and
- establishing favorable policy or negotiating beneficial, corporate-wide agreements on "bet the company" issues.
"Cradle to Grave" Service
A signed government contract is not our end goal. Rather, we believe that a successfully executed contract is the more important goal and, thanks to Jim McAleese's experience and personal attention to every client and every contract, we can promise "cradle-to-grave" preemption and mitigation of issues during contract performance. The most obvious benefit is capturing critical program "down-selects," while legitimately preserving the entitlement to cost overruns and schedule slippages that are often triggered during performance by the government or third parties … without loss of customer goodwill.
Long-Term Customer Allegiance
We are proud of our reputation, and we promise our clients that every negotiation we make on their behalf is based on our reputation for creating "win/win" solutions with senior decision makers with whom we hold the highest credibility. The resulting long-term customer goodwill is a hallmark of McAleese & Associates, and is further underscored by Mr. McAleese's personal leadership on emerging procurement and budget issues that ultimately drive policy, program-acquisition strategies, and business trends.
