Boeing's Government Operations office is located in Arlington, VA, just outside of Washington D.C. and it serves the company in three main ways. It works with government officials and organizations that affect government decisions to protect and advance the company's interests, competitiveness and reputation; obtain support and resources; and shape public policy.
The office works with public officials across all levels of government -- federal, state, and local -- to carry out this mission. It also works with various third parties -- organizations such as think tanks, associations, public policy groups, international organizations, and consulting agencies.
While The Boeing Company at large creates world-class commercial and defense products, the Government Operations office provides the support needed from government to ensure the company’s success. For example, it works for fair trade practices, and reasonable levels of taxation and regulation so that Boeing can remain competitive in global markets and support U.S. economic growth and jobs.
In addition to these many functions, the office serves as a point of contact between the Washington D.C. community (government, third parties, and businesses) and the various divisions of The Boeing Company (BCA, BDS, BCC).
