What the EY-Parthenon government and public sector (GPS) strategy consulting teams can do for you

Governments worldwide, including national, state and local entities and other public sector organizations, are faced with major transformation. Recent shocks — such as the COVID-19 pandemic, war in Ukraine and the consequences of climate change — are challenging how they organize and manage their economies and communities. Simultaneously, new technology is providing innovative ways to improve health and social and economic wellbeing for people everywhere. All these factors are key reasons why the future of government is likely to be very different.

How do national, state and local governments begin to sort through divergent needs, set priorities and determine the course of action? EY-Parthenon government and public sector (GPS) strategy consulting can help facilitate this transition. We have deep knowledge and broad experience working with national, state and local governments, and education institutions, on strategic and organizational issues. Our dedicated teams use emerging technological tools and digital capabilities to solve challenges.

During the pandemic, our public sector consulting group helped governments move quickly to solve heretofore unseen challenges, from pandemic vaccine distribution to supply chain bottlenecks. New public-private partnerships formed, and new technology was implemented on a mammoth scale and at a rapid pace. This forward momentum demonstrates how the many challenges ahead can be met.
