Around the world, governments are faced with an increasingly complex array of challenges. At the same time there is an increasing demand for transparency and accountability on public policies.
EY works with many of the world’s governments to address challenges such as security and border controls, climate change, realignment in the global economy and ever-aging populations. We understand the growing pressure to deliver more and better public services for less cost and to increase public value.
In addition to providing audit services, we help clients implement policy and drive benefits and growth through financial effectiveness, operational performance efficiencies and delivery of major programs, both on time and to budget. Our clients include international institutions, national and regional governments, as well as large not-for-profit and education entities.
Whilst each nation faces specific challenges, we offer the benefit of our shared experiences and approaches. Our Global Government and Public Sector (GPS) Center, based in Brussels, provides both our experienced teams and our clients with access to a wealth of insight and creates a platform for innovative services to be co-developed.
