Levels of Service Fee Structure

Keller Partners & Company (KPC) offers an exclusive “Levels of Service” retainer fee structure because, while many organizations require a full-service government relations firm in Washington, D.C., some do not. It is true that securing funding or a regulatory fix, lobbying decision-makers or crafting legislation and policy, can be a very expensive endeavor (fees can easily start at more $10,000/month). Tailoring our services to address your specific needs, without the extras or the overhead, will also achieve your respective goals.

We invite you to consider the four Levels of Service below, and to contact us for a free consultation to help determine your needs and which level would best fit your objectives.


Level One is Keller Partners’ basic level of service and is an affordable option for organizations that want to have a substantive impact by interacting with federal or state governments. Services will primarily include the following:

  • Conducting an on-site Resource Review and Analysis (RRA) of your organization’s strengths
  • Marketing your organization to Federal and State Governments
  • Building genuine and valuable relationships within the federal government and/or state governments
  • Scheduling and attending meetings with elected officials and staff, preparing all materials (including briefing books, leave-behinds) and conducting all follow-up
  • Leveraging our experience to amplify your voice with elected officials
  • Preparing your organization for coalition “fly-ins”
