Government & Public Sector
Government in transformation
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 services that will have lasting impact.
About our global sub-sectors
- Health care
Few sectors are facing as many challenges as health care. From aging populations to affordability and rising patient expectations, health care practitioners have to address issues broad in scope and borderless in range -- all against a backdrop of constant budgetary pressures.
Demographic, cultural and economic change, as well as a growing burden of complex and chronic disease, challenge the future sustainability of health systems and demand new and innovative solutions to ensure future health needs and expectations are met.
At EY, our dedicated health care practice works with health care organizations to drive performance, manage risk and sustain improvement. Our team has diverse backgrounds from former secretaries of departments of health, clinicians, provider chief executive officers and executives, health strategy and policy advisers through to service and program managers. Our global integration provides access to an international panel of recognized experts in health care, which facilitates innovation, decision-making and speed of execution.
EY advises and works collaboratively with a range of organizations across the health industry from state departments of health, health insurers, through to public and private sector service providers. We challenge the status quo and bring fresh perspectives and insight to our clients’ thinking and solutions.
Our key focus areas include:
- System architecture and transformation
- Productivity and performance improvement
- Clinical and quality improvement
- Service and capital planning
- Organizational risk management
- Assessment of impact of public-private partnerships

Infrastructure investment and development is a top priority for governments globally — an indispensable necessity for poverty reduction, social progress and inclusive economic growth. While rapid urbanization is putting pressure on emerging markets to develop critical new infrastructure, developed economies need to expand existing infrastructure due to aging assets and sustained underinvestment.
With global population expected to reach 8 billion by 2025, infrastructure investments are needed to supply sufficient water, roads, housing and power. Among the issues facing governments are:
- Aging infrastructure
- Predictions of future national transportation gridlock
- Soaring energy and water costs
Governments are also facing challenges in meeting their infrastructure obligations. Infrastructure projects are significant in size, scope, complexity, and in financing arrangements. They also bring increased public scrutiny and more demand for stakeholder engagement.
We provide support from the earliest stages of analysis, from project evaluation to procurement, financial close, construction and operations. We can assist our clients in devising and comparing financial plans and delivery approaches for projects that involve public, federal or private financing, project revenues and/or grants — and provide support to our clients in their implementation of those plans.
Our global award-winning Infrastructure Advisory team of more than 700 dedicated professionals has a strong track record in providing advice across the infrastructure life cycle.
