The New Zealand local government sector has improved significantly in the past decade, delivering its services more efficiently and effectively at higher levels of service standards. One challenge has remained constant – the need to deliver improved results within ever tightening financial constraints. But fresh ideas and different perspectives could make all the difference.
As the environment continues to increase in complexity, our dedicated team can help you work within legislative constraints while still meeting the ever-increasing expectations of public accountability, transparency and sustainable activity. Whether you are looking for fresh ideas or to make a significant transition, we can help you with:
Innovation - Build a flexible organisation that meets the long term interests of the community you serve within legislative and financial constraints.
Sustainability - With a strategic focus, use sustainability to not only reduce costs and free up cash and resources, but to also create new opportunities for sustainable development.
Governance and risk management - Anticipate, understand and manage your strategic, operational and compliance risk so that any decision you make can withstand public scrutiny.
Financial reporting - Strengthen the link between expenditure and performance to achieve outcomes and drive results.
Shared services - Streamline your operations through collaborative public/private partnerships and the promotion of 'in-house' capacity to reduce costs while maintaining high quality services.
