professional legislative consulting services
Winston & Strawn LLP, Washington, DC,
an estimated $115,000.
The University will use this legal firm to provide professional lobbing and governmental services on behalf of the Board of Trustees of Southern Illinois University.
We are in the middle of our annual lobbying effort to attract federal research grants for the University and this vendor spearheads those efforts at the federal level. It is a legislative function that requires on-going communication between the vendor and our SIU Congressional delegation that results in research grants being earmarked for the University by members of Congress during the federal budget process.
Winston & Strawn provides us with a higher level of service because of their deep understanding and knowledge of Southern Illinois University.
