Corporate Capabilities

CORPORATE CAPABILITIES STATEMENT

WHO WE ARE: 

Bowman Performance Consulting (BPC) began offering professional consulting, scientific research, and evaluation services in 2001.  BPC’s main office is located in Shawano with several regional offices throughout the state.  BPC provides culturally responsive and contextually applicable services to hundreds of national clientele across multijurisdictional contexts: public, private, non-profit and tribal sectors.  BPC’s clients and projects also span many interdisciplinary areas:  health, human services, education, governance, economic development, and justice.

BPC develops projects, provides training/technical assistance, and designs studies that not only complete the scope of work on time and within budget, but engages clients in a meaningful way so the skills, capacities, and resources are increased as an intentional result of BPC working with you.  When we say that, “BPC works with you and not on you” we truly mean it!  Our job is not done unless the client is more equipped and empowered to do the job after BPC leaves the job site.  As a client of BPC you can expect to be authentically engaged, thinking critically, and making decisions based on measurable targets and data.

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 culturally responsive and contextually applicable services to the public, private, non-profit, and Tribal sectors.  Our primary target markets are the educational, academic, economic development, health, 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.  Uniquely, 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). BPC’s value-added client services allow the greatest opportunity for success so positive changes can be institutionalized and targeted resources are leveraged and sustained after the project ends.

FINANCIAL SUMMARY:  BPC is an award winning and nationally credentialed professional service organization that 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 to sustain, expand, and deepen our service offerings to a national clientele.  Since 2001, our annual organizational revenues have ranged from $450,000 to $900,000 that has been generated by 8-10 multi-year projects (on average).  BPC tracks how our projects are awarded and over 85% our awards come not by competitive bids but rather by repeat clients and/or through word-of-mouth based on our high quality, on time, within budget, and valued added services.  Yes, BPC is a vendor but we’ve grown to have a reputation of being a partner for collaborative and sustained improvement efforts.  BPC’s reputation has resulted in many state, national, and Tribal awards as well as appointments to boards, committees, and task force groups across the country.  Our high quality services, strong business operations, and consistent performance over the years have helped to secure certifications and credentials in the academic and business community.  Certifications include:  Woman-owned Business Enterprise, Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, Minority-owned Business Enterprise, What Works Clearinghouse/U.S. Department of Education Scientific Evaluator, Culturally/Contextually Responsive and Trained Evaluator, Native American / TERO Certified Firm, and former 8a certified organization.  A full list of BPC’s certifications and credentials can be found at www.bpcwi.com.

SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR & PHILANTHROPIC SUPPORT:  Because BPC is a small business, our efforts for strategic partnering, leveraging resources, and running a lean business is critical to our organizational success and financial health.  BPC is a social entrepreneurial organization that wants to leverage our resources (time, money, supplies, etc.) to contribute to the communities we work in and the causes near and dear to our hearts.  Therefore beyond traditional prime or sub-contracting, BPC contributes via pro bono work with colleagues and pattering organizations on task forces, committees, boards, and through presenting/publishing. Additionally BPC volunteers in and outside of the Shawano, WI community and provides sponsorship through events that are important to BPC’s mission.  Examples of BPC’s volunteerism and philanthropy include:  Domestic Abuse Food & Clothes Drives, Bras for the Cause (Breast Cancer Awareness), Melanoma Awareness Sponsorship, Memorial Bike Rides (Ovarian & Prostrate Cancer), Memorial Golf Tournaments, sponsoring local businesses/entrepreneurs in Chambers of Commerce or U.S. Small Business Administration training events, Coats/Food for Children Drives (for at-risk and low socio-economic children/families), and providing Native American, urban, and rural student scholarships for college, travel abroad, and/or work internship experiences.

Milwaukee County Certifications – Certification is the process used by Milwaukee County’s Community Business Development Partners department (CBDP) to determine the eligibility of small businesses to participate in Milwaukee County’s small and disadvantaged business opportunity program initiatives.  These initiatives are designed to increase the diversification of Milwaukee County’s annual spend to include more small, local businesses.  Doing business with small, local businesses enables Milwaukee County dollars to remain in the community, and for those dollars to work toward sustainable job creation.  Becoming certified may create new, or increase the current number of, opportunities for small businesses to perform work with Milwaukee County.
