The Isaac Consulting Group’s (ICG) mission focuses on improving federal agency performance. Agencies are under continual pressures to operate more efficiently and effectively, while at the same time to justify and execute their hard-earned appropriated funds. We bring proferssional skills and experience to prevent, detect, or correct agency financial management concerns.
The ICG Story
The Isaac Consulting Group (ICG) is the result of seeing the odd correlation of annual increased federal spending with annual reporting of mediocre-to-poor performance. How can that be? There are many talented and skilled federal workers and managers. However, workers and managers move around without leaving institutional knowledge in place.
ICG recognizes the need for the federal workforce to change and we observed that sucessor managers and workers may not be equipped to effectively perform roles and duties that are mandated by ever changing legislation, hence, mediocre-to-poor performance.
ICG has obtained financial management experience from the commercial industry, federal contractor community, and federal employment. ICG commercial financial management experience grew from working at Fortune 500 companies, federal contractor work experience for major federal contractos, and direct federal employment as well.
As a result, ICG was created by a passion to increase the positive reporting of federal productivity and reduces waste, fraud, and mismanagement based on more efficiencies in daily operations.
