Making an impact in the public sector

The Deloitte team provides support to public sector leaders, helping you to address your most complex and challenging issues. We help organisations deliver on the competing priorities of achieving financial savings, managing demand, improving productivity and redesigning services to provide citizen value.

This ranges from identifying and implementing new delivery models, supporting devolved governments to address their local challenges to delivering digital services. Individual decision makers are supported through leadership, talent and transition programmes, all designed to develop the skills and knowledge required to drive public sector redesign.

The Impact report shares these stories and is a unique insight into innovation across the public sector. 

Metropolitan Police: Keeping bobbies on the beat

The Metropolitan Police Service (the Met) is a critical public service body. With nearly 50,000 employees, it is one of the largest police forces in the world, and has a remit ranging from law enforcement to the protection of the British Royal Family. When Deloitte was engaged to help address pressing gaps in performance and budget, we knew it would be a huge challenge to deliver on the competing priorities of achieving financial savings, maintaining police numbers and increasing public confidence.

Bringing private sector insight to public services

Local government faces ongoing funding pressures coupled with increasing demand for services and we are proud to be helping Hampshire County Council transform its services in light of these challenges. As the council’s private sector partner (PSP), we work closely with its corporate management team, implementing a digital strategy and bringing insights from the private sector to demonstrate how new technologies can not only change service delivery but also help Hampshire’s residents interact with the council. This has led to more efficient and cost-effective ways of working and improved collaboration between council staff in priority areas.

Welsh Government: Pro bono advice on the first taxes in 800 years

The move towards further devolution of fiscal powers to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland presents their governments with historic opportunities to achieve their various policy objectives. For example, from April 2018, Wales will levy a land transaction tax to replace stamp duty land tax, and a landfill disposals tax to replace landfill tax — the first Welsh taxes for nearly 800 years. We advised the Welsh Government as it assessed possible operational policy standards that could be used to take forward these new tax powers. Our international and national tax subject-matter expertise means we can help the key decision makers understand the link between their policy aims and the implications of these structures, and ensure leading practice in applying the legislation.

Palace of Westminster: Restoring one of the world’s most iconic buildings

The Palace of Westminster is a one million square foot Grade One Listed UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the most recognisable buildings in the world.
