Government & Public Sector
Doing more with less
Policy-makers are operating in a rapidly-changing world. Shifting demographics, urbanization and climate change are just a few of the long-term and systemic trends reshaping 21st century government.
And with finances tight, growth stalling and unemployment high, the legacy of the financial crisis continues to play out across borders.
Our Government & Public Sector practice aims to be the preferred partner in driving transformational change for governments around the world. In countries large and small, developed and emerging, we understand the issues and can provide you solutions that will have lasting impact.
We help governments facing a changing world.
- Advising on public–private partnerships
EY has a leading public–private partnership (PPP) advisory group, having accumulated considerable experience of work with public authorities throughout the world, including expertise in debt advisory.
Along with PPP and concession projects in Western Europe, North America and Australia, where PPP schemes of financing are not new and the debt financing market is strongly developed, EY has performed pilot PPP projects in Russia and other emerging market countries.,/p>
In Russia, our projects have included development of PPP structures for construction of airports, toll roads and other infrastructure. Our Project Finance team includes PPP specialists as well as banking, finance, transport and engineering experts, allowing us to perform our assignments with high quality and strong results.
Internationally, our team works with governments and major transportation companies, enriching our experience with the best international standards and practices associated with PPP projects.
- Incorporating globalization into strategic planning
Globalization has had significant impact on governments, creating much greater interconnection between problems, ideas and solutions. A nation’s economic policy is no longer confined within its own borders but instead forms one link of a larger chain.
We understand these issues and can help you manage projects, taking into account the complex problems and opportunities of globalization.
- Managing population and environmental shifts
Countries large and small, developed and emerging, are facing challenges such as aging populations, urbanization, climate change and the need for new infrastructure.
Let us work with you to develop a strategy for these complex, long-term and systematic issues.
- Stimulating economic growth with entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs are increasingly seen as crucial for sustainable economic recovery, and policy-makers have a key role to play to encourage this growth. Governments can do this by providing the right platform for growth through effective policies, regulation and incentives.
We encourage the work of entrepreneurs working in the government and public sector, and other areas, too. Our annual EY World Entrepreneur of the Year award spotlights the best and brightest.
- Doing more with less
The financial crisis has left policy-makers tasked with delivering public services with fewer resources and at a time of rising citizen expectations. Improving efficiency, productivity and finding better ways to provide services remain priorities around the world.
Are you doing the best you can with your strained resources? We can help.
