The Laurel Consulting Group was founded in 1990, and within four years began providing management support services to federal government agencies as an 8(a) certified small business. In 1998, LCG won its first National Institutes of Health contract, providing the institute with IT services. After successfully graduating from the 8(a) program in 2001, our corporate headquarters was relocated to Arlington, Virginia, and Laurel Consulting Group became known as LCG, Inc. In 2002, LCG opened an office in Rockville, Maryland to serve its growing NIH customer base.
The Environmental Protection Agency recognized LCG in 2003 with its SDB Contractor of the Year award. In response to the E-GOV Act, in 2004 LCG developed a web-based program called GAMES, now known as the Application Review Module (ARM). We also implemented Telework Online at several NIH Institutions, reducing processing time, increasing flexibility and eliminating the previous paper-based system.
In 2005, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Office of Community Services (OCS) awarded LCG its Outstanding Contractor Award for using new technologies and innovative foresight to re-engineer the ACF/OCS competitive discretionary grant review process.
The National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Aging awarded LCG its Director Award in 2008 for enhancing the Institute’s ability to manage and gain greater insight into Extramural Grant funding dollars using the web-based LCG developed ADAMS.net.
Again in 2011, ACF/OCS recognized LCG with its Outstanding Contractor Award – this time for superior service and support of the grant review process.
In 2012, LCG won CIOSP3 Small Business Government Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) in all 10 task areas. The following year, the company migrated ARM to the cloud, lowering costs for its government clients and providing better security and increased capacity for an increasingly complex application.
LCG introduced the mobile app “Who Wants to Be a Bioengineer?” in 2014 at the third annual USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo to help the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) encourage students to explore the field of bioengineering and pursue careers in research.
Also in 2014, LCG redesigned Science Advances, an existing National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) application, to enhance its performance and usability; won over $50 million in business on the CIOSP3 vehicle; and helped its federal clients award more than $1.6 billion in federal grants.
Since its beginnings, LCG has provided national and international grants support services to over 30 federal discretionary grant programs, and we continue to develop and implement emerging information technology based solutions. With each success, LCG continues the development of efficient technology solutions and improved grants management administration. A rapidly growing company with an increasingly diverse slate of services, we continue to tailor support to each individual client’s needs.
For two decades this unwavering commitment to customer service and client satisfaction has made us a key partner in the federal quest for good government made better.
