Government & Public Sector

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.

The US Government & Public Sector practice of Ernst & Young LLP combines private sector leading practice with an understanding of the public sector’s diverse needs, focused on delivering improved public services. We respond to your specific issues by bringing together highly skilled professionals across Advisory, Assurance, Tax and Transaction Advisory Services.

We believe integration fosters innovation. Unprecedented challenges require support that is connected, responsive, and insightful. We are ready to help you build a better working world.

  • Managing enterprise risk

    Interest in enterprise risk management (ERM) is growing fast among federal agencies, as well as State and Local governments. A number of them have appointed a chief risk officer to manage their ERM efforts. Government 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.

  • Implementing category management in the federal government

    Federal agencies are facing increasing pressure to reduce costs in the wake of ever-decreasing budgets. At the same time, these agencies are being asked to maintain and, in many instances, increase their level of service and responsibility. To avoid making unilateral cuts, federal agencies must look strategically at their portfolio of expenditures to determine the best levers to help reduce spending without sacrificing service. One lever is to take a more holistic look at the process of managing and procuring goods and services through the use of category management and strategic sourcing.

    Find out how EY helped a Federal agency implement category management.
