Providing Comprehensive Consulting Services to Government Agencies

Government agencies have special needs when it comes to research and training. Of course they need contractors who possess a depth of knowledge and expertise. But they also need contractors who possess the necessary management systems and experience to ensure that taxpayers get full value for the dollars the government spends. Moreover, they need contractors with deep industry relationships who can leverage the government investment with private sector investments of time, products, and money.

With 50 years of experience in government consulting, Home Innovation Research Labs has been the "go-to" consultant for numerous federal and state government agencies across a wide range of research disciplines.
