Our Policy, Programs & Evaluation teams works with government to support the design, implementation, review and evaluation of policies and programs.
We help government and NGOs to design, implement and review policies and programs.
For government, the need to develop sound, economically viable policies and programs is paramount. To do this, they must first define their role in engaging and supporting the Australian community, and how to best achieve the desired impact.
Likewise, non-government agencies and businesses that work with government to deliver services to the community need to determine how to best use their resources to achieve their stated goals.
At KPMG, our Policy Programs & Evaluation (PP&E) team works with government and non-government agencies to support them in achieving these outcomes.
Our dedicated PP&E group understands the unique needs of the public sector today. We have worked closely with all levels of government for many years, and our people have a deep understanding of the environment, culture, policies and machinery of government.
Through our extensive national and global networks, we also have access to resources to help government explore new, international perspectives.
Our sector focus includes:
We also have a national team with extensive experience working with Indigenous communities and organisations.
Public Sector Programs
We work with agencies around the structure and design of programs, considering the most appropriate operating model, risks, stakeholders, financial management and performance measurement and reporting.
Program reviews will often incorporate assessments of efficiency and effectiveness, alignment and strategy, as well as compliance and performance of programs. This can involve working with the government agency to review the program, or working with service providers to build capability and supporting them to achieve the desired outcomes.
