Makwa Global and G4S Risk Management LTD Announce Strategic Partnership

MINNEAPOLIS - March 23, 2020

Makwa Global, LLC and G4S Risk Management Ltd are pleased to announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining the simplified acquisition flexibility of an experienced 8(a) Tribal Enterprise and the corporate depth and past performance of a global multi-national organization.

Makwa Global and G4S Risk Management have come together to offer the United States Government (USG) a substantial Foreign National and Third Country National staffing resource and global reach, by leveraging a network of 540,000 staff in 90 countries.  The Makwa Global - G4S Risk Management partnership brings together deep skills in business and government contracting, verifiable past performance, corporate depth in resourcing and sustaining complex programs, commercial stability, ethical governance, rigorous quality management processes, and substantial global reach to successfully support USG clients.

"During an unprecedented time of many restrictions on travel and deployments, our partnership offers experienced leadership and substantial resources, capable of the rapid and reliable delivery of OCONUS based services," says Derek Dorr, CEO.  "With a robust global presence and added capabilities of G4S Risk Management, this partnership will allow us to provide local, and already deployed and established Foreign National and Third Country National labor to our clients.  Partnering with G4S Risk Management to deliver staffing solutions during this challenging staffing time is a common sense solution, even more so in complex environments or those that require specialist capability development."

With the current global crisis, limitations on international travel and staffing mobilization, the Makwa Global - G4S Risk Management team can bridge the federal need for global staffing, enabled through the world's largest security employer and offering already deployed and established global workforces.*  Together, working as one team, Makwa Global and G4S Risk Management are agile, proven, globally capable, and ready to support continuing USG needs in sustaining OCONUS operations and enabling critical activity.

*Labor category, availability and minimum contract requirements differ per market.
