State and Municipal Government Relations

Novus assists clients in identifying, interfacing, and liaising with elected and appointed leaders in both state and municipal government. Our efforts span beyond leveraging our relationships to achieve your goals.  We employ campaign-tested techniques to move the dial and influence stakeholders, a tactic that results in long term policy shifts. Targeted digital advertising campaigns? Been there.  Cultivating a grassroots movement? Done that. 


Novus advises and guides clients in dealing with Massachusetts public procurement processes.  We also assist clients in identifying potential projects and provide insight into opportunities for contract growth.  Services include understanding bid requirements, adding insight into an effective Supplier Diversity Program plan, completing required bid response forms and navigating the Commonwealth’s online eProcurement system COMMBUYS.  

Permitting & Licensing

Novus navigates complex permitting and licensing requirements for clients, including event permits and liquor licensing.  


“Novus dramatically accelerated the resolution of permitting issues surrounding the development of property that is both in a flood zone and in the buffer zone of a wetland. They are great partners.”
