New: Breach Liability Check Up
Many companies are not entirely aware of their exposure for customer data entrusted to vendors, subcontractors, or others. The recent data breach by a T Mobile vendor is a case in point. The telecom giant will be ultimately liable for breaches of its customer data for which it was not at direct fault. While it is not possible to control all actions of all entities that may be entrusted with sensitive data, it is possible to mitigate risk by ensuring that contractual instruments clearly spell out the requirements for data security and data privacy, and that those instruments include adequate protections should a vendor breach their contractual responsibilities.
Outsource Your Government Contracting Needs
Torchwood can save you money, and count as an EDWOSB member of your team on most federal contracts. Torchwood is an SBA recognized Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business providing outsourcing services for State and Local, Federal Contracts, and RFP Reviews. Torchwood focuses on delivering solutions that help clients do more with less by creating strategies to outsource your government contracting needs, from RFP review, through proposal writing, prime or subcontract negotiation, compliance and close out. We can also modernize technology, align IT with measurable program goals, and verify information systems security and privacy. Torchwood is also a SWaM in the Cyommonwealth of Virginia, and can offer the same teaming benefits and services as for the federal government.
Torchwood GovCon can take on and outsource your most difficult government contracting challenges. We work either onsite or offsite, giving you a "heads up" before major remediation is needed, and when steps must be taken to ensure compliance. We offer our services on a per project or per task level.

Who Are Our Customers?
Torchwood Government Contracting meets the ongoing outsourcing needs of Commercial and Government Contractors. Our target clients are running fast moving, small and large businesses, that don't have time for extensive back and forth as attorneys maintain adversarial relationships. Our customers need to get business done AND mitigate risk, with the awareness that without risk, there is no business. First you buy the seller, then you write the contract.
Government Prime Contractors should work in an alliance relationship with their customer - the Government Client. Negotiating the prime contract should be done from the position of how both entities can win. There is a similar symbiosis between Prime Contractors and Subcontractors. The concept of working together is often lost in the midst of negotiations.
While the pool of government money is shrinking, more of the remainder is being set aside for minority small business owners, veteran small business owners, and women small business owners. In 2013, the federal government once again fell short of its small business contracting goals, providing only 22.5%, or $89.9 billion to small businesses. The federal government has failed to reach their goal for 12 years in a row. As government increases its efforts to meet these goals, more dollars will be available to set-aside businesses. As an EDWOSB (Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business), Barry Law can provide unique Subcontracting opportunities to clients and non clients alike, as they capture federal contracts. As a SWaM (Small Women and Minority owned business), Torchwood GovCon can provide the same types of services in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Our clients save considerable costs by allowing Torchwood to outsource their government contracts, and outsource RFP reviews.
