Supply Chain Management
SCG empowers companies to use their supply chain as a strategic weapon by assessing trade-offs across four strategic attributes—cost & efficiency, reliability, agility, and responsiveness. SCG works with organizations to overcome supply chain challenges and capture opportunities to accelerate revenue growth, boost customer satisfaction and advocacy, unlock savings and cash flow, and minimize risk.
Companies can grow fast, especially if they’re well managed and offer great services or products. For most very small businesses, human resource consulting enters the playing field once a company eclipses a certain point in both company size and profit margin. SCG provides human resources consulting such as: outsourcing, HR audit and operational review, and employee handbook and other policy development.

Large government contractors typically maintain contracts departments well-staffed with contract managers and contract administrators. However, smaller contractors may not have the need or resources to establish a full service contracts function in-house.

Ethics and Compliance Programs
No industry is under such constant scrutiny as government contracting. Recent changes to the FAR added rigorous new ethics and compliance requirements to the already formidable array of existing laws and regulations. Even most small contractors are now required to have a Code of Conduct and a compliance program. Our expert consultants can assist you with the review and development of an employee code of business conduct and ethics and compliance training.
Most contractors who get into trouble with the authorities do so out of ignorance of the rules and regulations. Employee training is a key component of any compliance program. Our consultants are frequently asked to speak to industry groups on a variety of government contracting topics, participate in panel discussions, present seminars or webinars, and have published numerous articles.
