WHAT WE SELL:  BPC services fall under four main categories:   research, development, implementation, and evaluation.

  1. Research services involves studies to document baseline information; test ideas, programs, or theories; and/or to find innovative solutions to problems.  Examples:  feasibility studies, policy studies, workforce studies, literature reviews, customer service studies, or market studies/analysis.
  2. Development services include creation of new policies, programs, organizational, or systemic processes that support long-range efforts by the organization.  Examples:  professional development for staff; board or leadership training; policy and handbook development; creation of a strategic plan; or development of funding proposals. 
  3. Implementation services are better known as technical assistance and these services help the client to fully develop ideas, programming, or organizational structures.  Examples include:  implementation support for new grants or programs; monitoring and providing feedback on new policy/procedural implementation; working on certifications/accreditations; or providing support for implementation of a new strategic plan or workforce practice learned through trainings.
  4. Evaluation services help the client understand the short and long-term impacts by developing common performance metrics and indicators so changes in the human, program, organizational, or systems are documented.  Data is generated for intended changes to document baselines and so short-term impacts are noted and supports or hindrances for changes are known (process/implementation data).  Trend data is gathered over a longer time frame to know the annual or longitudinal (multiple year) impacts of programs, policies, procedures, or other organizational/systemic strategies (outcome data).  Examples include:  needs assessments; external grant evaluations; setting up monitoring/performance systems; or data retreats using evaluation or research data generated by the client and/or BPC to make data-driven and strategic decisions about programming, workforce, or organizational initiatives.

WHO WE SELL TO:  BPC provides services to the public, private, non-profit, and Tribal sectors and our primary target markets are educational, academic, and Native American communities.  We work in a “multi-jurisdictional” manner to support collaborative projects that enrich all who participate.  Often these customers work together on joint projects but have lowered capacity, working knowledge, practical experiences, and/or sensitivity to the culture, context, or community needs that the projects are being implemented into.  BPC serves to work “with” clients and not “on” them in order to build authentic partnerships and active participants in the project.  Through grant funded projects (public and non-profit sources); government sponsored initiatives (Public and Tribal Governments); and private sector partnerships BPC provides services where these target markets all meet by building capacity, strengthening coalitions, and supporting effective and evidence or research based programming.  BPC’s multijurisdictional projects and services have been carried out through projects in the disciplines of:  health, education, human services, justice, economic development, transportation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). In summary, BPC’s value-added client services allow the greatest opportunity for success so positive changes can be institutionalized and sustained after the project ends.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY:  BPC generates revenue through services on a fee-per-client basis not contingency.  Seeking long-term projects (3 to 5 years), BPC has had organizational stability since 2001 through multi-year grant evaluations, research projects, and technical assistance/development projects.  Since 2001, annual organizational revenues have ranged from $350,000 to $800,000.  BPC tracks how projects are garnered and over 80% are by repeat/word-of-mouth customers and/or due to minority/specialized certification procurement/contract award requirements.  BPC is often hired as a subcontractor on large multi-million, multi-state, and/or multi-year government, non-profit, or educational projects.  Beyond our strong educational training and solid work experience, BPC is also a state/nationally certified woman, minority, disadvantaged, scientific, and Native American firm.  Consequently, strategic partnership building, professional services, on-or under budget deliverables, and marketing are important to BPC’s overall financial health.  BPC’s collaborative partnerships and innovative marketing includes electronic, traditional, presentations, publications, and working pro bono with colleagues on task forces, committees, boards, and through presenting/publishing.
