Originally established as a public sector marketing consulting firm, Guthrie Consulting Inc. (GCI) was certified as an Underutilized Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (UDBE) in 2011. However, after discovering the numerous small business barriers to government contracting, GCI decided to forfeit its UDBE certification in 2013 and establish itself as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to assist with registrations, disadvantaged certifications and distribution of subcontracting opportunities.
Guthrie Consulting Inc. (GCI) provides procurement technical assistance to small business contractors and suppliers nationwide. We specialize in analyzing large contracts and breaking out portions suitable for small contractor bids. As an available resource for free contractor technical assistance, the organization works with local, state, and federal agencies to conduct outreach and coach small business contractors in the public bidding process.
Angie McDaniel is the founder and Director of Programs for the organization and its volunteers. She brings 20 years of construction industry knowledge to the program. Her background is in electro-mechanical repair and general contracting business development in both private and public sectors.
