Public Sector & Government
Government Advisory & Public Sector 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
Public sector debt is spiraling in many countries, and the desire to reduce budget deficits has suddenly become top priority for policy-makers around the world. Portfolios across the whole spectrum of government are coming under pressure. Defense is no exception.
However, while armed forces will likely continue to be required to reduce budgets even while national demands on their capabilities remain very high, two trends are evident. In the Western world, the spending growth typical of high-developed countries that dominated the defense landscape for decades is over. In developing countries, defense spending is increasing significantly. Because they have lower public debt levels, most of them are successfully funding the expansion of their defense capabilities.
EY help governments around the world move toward increasing effectiveness through improved organizational structure, procurement and resource management.

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.

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.

Systemic problems continue to echo across developing countries. Extreme poverty and hunger, child mortality, energy security and gender equality are just some of the issues requiring attention.
Addressing such diverse challenges is not easy. Development assistance remains integral to the fight against global poverty. However, effectively deploying such assistance is rarely straightforward.
From understanding the funding needs of recipient countries to ensuring that programs deliver sustainable change in a transparent and efficient manner, there is no shortage of challenges to address.
