Governments act to protect, provide for and invest in their citizens.
Governments protect their citizens through the judicial system.
Governments provide goods and services that individuals cannot provide individually for themselves such as transport and infrastructure, and to care for their citizens such as health and ageing, and community services.
And governments invest in their citizens by providing education services.
These services may be provided by public and private providers.
Governments are under tremendous pressure to provide the services demanded by their citizens – with limited resources to support a growing and ageing population, while continuously improving outcomes.
We have had a long involvement in assisting government and non-government providers to shape policy, strategy, regulation and programs for these services, and to evaluate policies and programs.
