What We've Done

Over the years, AMC’s systematic approach has proven to be effective and has enabled us to achieve success on behalf of our clients

Waste-Management

AMC gained approval for a $35,661,880 multi-year contract with an international waste disposal company, for solid waste disposal services.

DC-StreetCar

AMC gained approval for a multi-year contract ceiling increase with an international engineering firm in the amount of $14,000,000 to allow capacity for additional program management services related to the DC Streetcar Program Management Services Contract of July 3, 2013. The contract was subsequently awarded by the DC Council.

Carver-2000-Senior-Living

AMC worked on the Amended Chapter 46 of Title 47 of the District of Columbia Official Code to extend the tax and fee waivers and exemptions for the Carver 2000 Low-Income and Senior Housing Project located in various lots within squares 5190 and 5348. This resulted in the extension of the tax abatements for these properties for an additional 16 years.

Additional Legislative Achievements

Worked pro-actively to educate Executive staff, Councilmembers and Council staff to approve a Multi-Year contract with a national Managed Care Organization in the amount of $1,010,514,069.00 to provide healthcare and pharmacy services for its Managed Care Program filed in the Office of the Secretary on May 23, 2017 and subsequently approved without a hearing.

Worked pro-actively to educate Executive staff, Councilmembers and Council staff to approve a Multi-Year contract with an international professional service company and one of the Big Four auditors in the amount of $109,900,000.00 to provide services to manage and deliver software enhancements to the District of Columbia Access System (DCAS) filed in the Office of the Secretary on April 25, 2018 and subsequently approved without a hearing.

Worked pro-actively to educate Executive staff, Councilmembers and Council staff to approve the Ward 4 Full Service Grocery Store Amendment Act of 2017 – which amends Section 25-340.01 of the District of Columbia Official Code to create an exemption to the Class B Retailer’s License moratorium in Ward 4 for Full Service Grocery Stores. This major achievement allows full service grocery stores located in Ward 4 to apply for licenses to be able to sell beer and wine for off-premises consumption. In the larger perspective, almost every major real estate development requires an anchor retailer. Because of this moratorium which was implemented in 2001, anchor retailers were not considering Ward 4 in their expansion plans. Consequently, we have seen an explosion of development in all other wards except in Ward 4. This moratorium has negatively impacted the progress of the Walter Reed development among others. This legislation was approved without a hearing.

Mr. Greene was a key member of Walmart’s lobbying team that was seeking to stop enactment of the Large Retailer Accountability Act of 2013, which would have required Walmart and other large retailers to provide a living wage and other benefits to employees that were much greater than those required by other District-based employers. That legislation was passed by the Council but, as a result of Walmart’s lobbying efforts, it was vetoed by then-Mayor Vincent Gray. A subsequent lobbying campaign that included Mr. Greene resulted in a Council vote that failed to override Mayor Gray’s veto of the bill.

Worked pro-actively to educate Executive staff, Councilmembers and Council staff to approve a Multi-Year contract with an international waste disposal company in the amount of $35,661,880.00 for solid waste disposal services filed in the Office of the Secretary on September 25, 2015 and subsequently approved without a hearing.

Worked pro-actively to educate Executive staff, Councilmembers and Council staff to approve a Multi-Year contract ceiling increase with an international engineering firm in the amount of $14,000,000.00 to allow capacity for additional Program Management Services related to the DC Streetcar Program Management Services Contract, 7/3/13. The contract was subsequently awarded without a hearing. This effort was significant due to all of the negative press and public sentiment regarding the DC Streetcar program at the time.

Carver 2000 Low-Income and Senior Housing Project Amendment Act of 2011. – Amended Chapter 46 of Title 47 of the District of Columbia Official Code to extend the tax and fee waivers and exemptions for the Carver 2000 Low-Income and Senior Housing Project located in various lots within squares 5190 and 5348. Extended the tax abatements for these properties for an additional 16 years.

The Council passed School Attendance Clarification Amendment Act of 2015 that would alter the way all District schools, including independent schools, would report student enrollment, transfers, withdrawals and excessive absences. The independent schools were deeply concerned that the law and proposed regulations would impact significantly the way in which independent schools manage their records. We monitored the proposed changes to the attendance reporting regulations, advocated the Association’s position to Councilmember David Grosso, Chair of the Committee on Education, and other members of this Committee, the general counsel and State Superintendent of the DC Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE). They participated in several discussions about the proposed regulations and communicated the Association’s concerns, with the goal of ensuring that the new rules would not disrupt the way in which independent schools report enrollment, withdrawals and excessive absences. We also facilitated the collaboration between the Association and OSSE by drafting a set of proposed rules that took into consideration a number of the Association’s concerns, aligned with the reporting practices of District independent schools, but also allowed OSSE to accomplish its goal.
