“During my time in industry and government, I found there were select small businesses that became invaluable because they understood what we were trying to accomplish and they were able to deliver the support and services that contributed to our success.  Over time, these firms became trusted partners.  When I started BGS I wanted us to be the ‘go-to firm’ that clients could rely on for services and solutions for challenging missions.  This begins with outstanding people providing expertise, innovation, and solutions, and an unyielding commitment to client satisfaction.  We aim to see each challenge from our client’s perspective and to be agile and responsive in meeting our client’s needs to build trusted partnerships and long-term relationships.”

Today BGS is a successful small business with annual revenue exceeding $10 Million, talented resources, and strong capabilities in Information Management, Program Management, and Technical Services.  In May 2016, BGS was named DOE’s 8(a) Small Disadvantaged Business of the Year.
