Government & Public Sector


We work to deliver meaningful results through a deep understanding of the issues, an intimate appreciation of how the public sector works.

We work with central & local government to improve quality of services for kiwis.

KPMG understands the unique nature of the public sector and the challenges it faces, especially around delivering better public services within tight financial constraints. We work closely with agencies across the public sector spectrum (from government departments to state-owned enterprises), providing advice and assurance to solve problems and deliver results. 

What we do
Our government practice includes more than 100 partners and professionals who possess the knowledge, insight and awareness of pertinent legislation and regulatory implications needed to address the special needs of the public sector. 

Our Advisory professionals provide a broad array of services to help government agencies establish sustainable improvements to performance, operations and quality of service. These include regulatory and compliance support; review and evaluation; risk management; internal audit; programme/project assurance; strategic planning; financial and budget management; advice on infrastructure, technology and security services; forensic technology services, and more. We also undertake a range of financial audits on behalf of the Office of the Auditor-General.

Our Services
KPMG offers a range of services to help government organisations improve productivity and the quality of services they provide; help generate increased value for money; and assist with performance-related issues and challenges.
