Federal Government - Striking the right balance

The Australian Government must make strategic decisions that balance competing tensions: continual policy development, program delivery pressures, public accountability and administrative controls. PwC has extensive experience in public policy implementation, both domestically and internationally. We can provide a whole-of-department approach to specific portfolios or to issues that affect multiple departments and agencies.

State & Territory Governments - Doing more with less

Governments across Australia all face a similar challenge: how do they increase efficiency and reduce operating costs? At the same time, state and territory governments must balance the effects on service delivery, constituents, employees and the private sector.

Local knowledge combined with global thinking

Our team is made up of experienced consultants from around Australia. We understand the delivery pressures, public accountability requirements and administrative controls unique to each jurisdiction. At the same time, we are able to draw on extensive national and international experience to provide new perspectives and responses. It is this combination of local knowledge and global experience that is helping state and territory governments develop the policies, programs and services that meet the changing needs of the Australian public.
