Deloitte Analytics

Public sector

Public bodies need to become more efficient, cut costs, and workforce, but also deliver the core public services their citizens require.

Across the globe, public sector clients are being asked to improve the delivery of core services and information to citizens with significantly reduced budgets. Public bodies need to become more efficient in the way they operate, cut costs and manage their workforce, but continue to deliver the core public services their citizens require. Although no two governments are the same, the problems governments face have solutions which are globally applicable.

The need for information is not the exclusive domain of the private sector. Fundamental reforms of the way these clients manage and allocate resources, control risk & governance (both internal and external) and understand their workforce and customers is of critical importance. All areas of government – health and human services, tax and revenue management, defense, law and justice, transportation, security, education, and not-for-profit organizations – can leverage analytics to achieve enhanced insight and foresight into their activities.

The analytics based approaches and solutions Deloitte member firms develop can often be applied in numerous different countries and public sector bodies. The insight and innovation derived from these solutions have the potential to add value irrespective of scale; an analytics model or tool used in a small public sector body can often be applied at scale for a large government or department.


The Deloitte Analytics approach leverages advanced statistical modeling and visualization tools, business strategy, operational planning capabilities, deep data management and transformation expertise to solve key business issues. The Deloitte Analytics Public Sector group has the industry knowledge and tools to address the unique challenges that public sector organizations face—from accrual accounting and security to developing systems for specialized areas, such as inventory management, asset and fleet management, and water resource management.
