Building a better working world
Government leaders today are under extraordinary pressure to do more with existing, or fewer, resources. Sequestration, reduced tax revenues, soaring deficits and a deepening national debt are driving a focus on aligning resources where they can achieve the best outcomes. At the same time, there is demand for visibility and transparency in the use of those resources.

- Managing enterprise risk
Interest in enterprise risk management (ERM) is growing fast among federal agencies. A number of them have appointed a chief risk officer to manage their ERM efforts. Federal entities are starting to focus on enterprise solutions to manage risks that impact strategic and tactical objectives and use of resources.
Along with this, a number of agencies are looking to translate the concept of ERM past the abstract framework into practical solutions that will ultimately support risk enabled performance.
There is a need for more risk intelligent management of agencies so that future opportunities and threats to the agency’s performance are recognized and addressed timely and appropriately.
The EY Government and Public Sector Enterprise Risk Management team offers a proven methodology and approach to help agencies leverage their investments in complying with Office of Management and Budget Circular A-123 Appendix A and other requirements by identifying and replacing isolated initiatives and remediation fixes with a holistic approach to integrating internal controls, compliance and risk management initiatives under an ERM framework.
- Uncovering how political executives manage
While the public may perceive government as all about “policy,” the bulk of government work is about delivering specific services either directly to the American public or conducting activities on behalf of the nation.
To understand the challenges of political leadership and how top executives succeed in accomplishing an Administration’s objectives, business-in-government experts Paul R. Lawrence and Mark A. Abramson present the findings of a four-year study of top political appointees in the Obama Administration.
- 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.
