Public sector

The New Zealand public sector has changed significantly in the past decade, revamping, down-sizing and overhauling itself in order to operate more efficiently and effectively. One challenge has remained constant – the need to deliver results within tight financial constraints.

Deloitte is a leading adviser to a wide variety of public sector clients, both large and small, throughout New Zealand and overseas. We work alongside our public sector clients to ensure they reap the benefits of change, emerging technology, processes and ideas.

We also serve numerous not-for-profit clients, including social service organisations, professional and membership associations, cultural and educational institutions, health and welfare organisations, private foundations, religious organisations and other tax-exempt organisations and agencies.

How we can help
Innovation

Public sector leaders around the globe are facing unprecedented challenges. The issues are complex and innovation is emerging as the key to successful government transformation. The need for innovation has never been greater and the time for action is now. Governments need to respond now to the challenge of innovation. Expectations are greater than ever in terms of the ability of government to deliver new, high demand services in a timely and cost effective manner. More about innovation >

Operational effectiveness

In these times of economic uncertainty, public institutions face considerable pressure to keep their costs under control while at the same time improving their internal efficiency and effectiveness. They need to do more with fewer resources available. Reducing internal bureaucracy, promoting efficiency and performance management, improving governance and accountability are critical challenges for the public sector.

Shared services

The shift toward shared services as a means to cut costs and improve quality is well underway. In theory, a shared service organisation (SSO) can improve efficiency and control, give business units deeper support and let more people focus on what they do best. In practice, it takes serious planning, coordination and hard work to realize those benefits.  More about shared services >

Technology transformation

Public sector organisations are striving to capitalize on the opportunities offered by the issues shaping missions — from cybersecurity and energy sustainability to workforce transformation and reform. Amidst new calls to innovate, they are guiding their organizations to navigate a fast-changing technology environment while managing to higher expectations and mounting mandates. All while spending less, much less. More information about technology transformation >
