Our Mission

RGS brings fresh ideas and powerful insights to the government’s toughest challenges.

For over 30 years leaders have turned to us for a new perspective – one that adds energy and creativity to each project regardless of its size or complexity. RGS gets the job done.

We are a rapidly growing management consulting firm that time and again has measurably improved the way our Government does business and provided a positive return on the taxpayers’ investment. 

We work closely with defense, homeland security, law enforcement, and intelligence agencies to achieve their mission better, faster, and more economically.

RGS clients benefit from our financial stability, experience, and in-depth expertise of a large management consulting firm, but without the layers that separate great ideas from action. We bring a long-term commitment to each engagement, a razor-sharp focus on creating strong and positive relationships, and a personal touch that will never waver.

Our Culture

Looking for a company that thrives on fresh ideas? Done.

Need individuals working hand-in-hand with you that bring a passion and drive to solve complex challenges? Done. Looking for a partner that brings entrepreneurial spirit to every project we engage in? Done. RGS’s “Done” attitude stems directly from our unique culture.

We bring the expertise, technical savvy, and benefits of world-class firms—but we work hard to eliminate the bureaucracy. Our open-door atmosphere promotes responsiveness and flexibility: employees at all levels communicate with each other and with senior management. Partnering, sharing, and collaborating are essential to our success and ultimately, that of our clients.

Encourage the Entrepreneurial Spirit

We encourage employees to explore their interests by identifying and creating new business opportunities. Our Human Capital, Strategic Planning, Information Design, and SharePoint service offerings were all initiated by individual RGSers.

Show Them What Success Looks Like

When your people see themselves as partners in your business, it contributes immeasurably to your success. That’s why RGS practices Open Book Management (OBM) – an active program of sharing information with associates. Its designed to empower them to make more informed decisions on RGS projects and on their own careers. We actually train RGSers how to run a business like RGS.

Partner to Bring Out the Best in People

RGS offers employees the opportunity to invest in our business – currently 40% of RGS employees are owners. As shareholders, RGS employees have a personal, vested interest in the success of their projects and our organization. Employee ownership enhances our entrepreneurial spirit, encourages the growth of technical expertise, and shapes our corporate culture and strategy.

What Others Say About Us

"I am writing to personally thank you for the exceptional effort and time devoted to the NAVSEA Senior Executive Management Office...Without question, you exemplified what we effectively called the ‘A-Team.’ NAVSEA will use the work you created as a vital and necessary tool to guide our executive program development structure. The RGS team rocks."

Navy Client Director, Senior Executive Management Office

"I just wanted to take the time to recognize your exceptional professionalism in managing the Tanium pilot. This project has very high visibility (OPNAV/FLEETCYBERCOM) while being exceptionally challenging. We are attempting to dramatically compress the normal acquisition process and this kind of change is rarely palatable. I admire your optimism and respectful approach in keeping the team on task. Thanks again for setting the example."

SPAWAR ClientPMW 205 Cyber Security Strategist

"Yes I got it. It is as perfect as everything you've done for us so far! Thank you for being so professional, cooperative and easy to work with regardless of our crazy, short-timeline requests! We will contact you soon again! :-)"

NAVSEA ClientNAVSEA Corportate Data Warehouse

"[RGS employee] is definitely an asset and is going to be greatly missed! He is tenacious and forward thinking. And when presented with a problem I don't think I ever heard him say he couldn't do something - rather what could be done - or take it back and work a solution. That is a rare quality."

Our Team

We think smarter, harder, and faster.

RGSers have the experience and technical savvy of the best consulting firms, but our hearts are in our work—we’re practical, not arrogant, and highly likable.

With more than 175 full-time RGSers, our work is centered in the Washington, DC metro area, but our employees support our customers from multiple sites nation-wide. As we continue to grow, we will never lose focus on our commitment to maintaining the outstanding levels of service that our clients have come to expect.
