DDA knows that good policies help organizations to achieve their goals, and good public policy allows us to live in a better world. A policy is a deliberate system of principles to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes and long-term results. Policies can be understood as public, management, financial, and administrative mechanisms arranged to reach explicit goals.

Our professionals have decades of experience working in and around the Alaska Legislature, as well as experience working on international agreements and domestic policy with the federal government.  We have also collaborated with non-profits, native corporations, tribal authorities, and business leaders on policy research and development. When the need arises for public policy change, we work with clients to identify priorities and build a strategy that leverages opportunities in the current legislative landscape to address them.
