why blue jeans?

Reliable. Timeless. Versatile. A trusted staple that somehow fits right for any occasion... To us, blue jeans represent our ethos as a consultancy; friendly yet professional, comfortable yet hard-working, reliable and flexible, we are trusted experts in our field and integrate seamlessly with businesses that want real results - without the fuss.  


Blue Jeans Federal was founded in March 2023 by Chris Barr, a seasoned executive with 33+ years of experience in the Federal IT industry and a simple thesis: small businesses need help with growth. Most small businesses are delivery-focused and outstanding at providing their technical solutions and services to the Government. But growth is hard, complex, frustrating, and a completely different discipline to delivery. 

Blue Jeans Federal was built to help small businesses meet their growth challenges: winning new contracts; managing the growth function longitudinally across the lifecycle; and differentiating themselves in an increasingly competitive market. Chris’ vision takes growth consulting one step further. With Blue Jeans Federal, not only do growth focused businesses get a trusted partner to support their growth needs, but they get a consulting firm that is incredibly easy to work with. No long-term contracts, all engagements are month-month. Fair and transparent pricing. Frequent and regular communication and collaboration. Trust relationships. Honest feedback and guidance.

A firm that clients can depend on - and enjoy working with.

Chris has a seemingly endless number of industry contacts, which has helped us through the teaming process. He's a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him and his team."

- VP Business Development, mid-sized INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (IT) firm

"I've worked with Chris for 11 years, and now with his Blue Jeans Federal team for six months. They hit the ground running and helped us clean up our pipeline, which had SO many outdated/unworked opportunities. Blue Jeans helped us prioritize our opportunities and develop capture plans for those that were highest priority. We are moving forward with intention, and I love it! Thanks to Chris and the Blue Jeans team."
