KPMG’s Government & Public Sector Department plays a crucial role in the redesigning and development of the Public Administration of Greece, today. The basic pillars on which KPMG’s executives rely on are the knowledge of the industry’s latest trends, the use of innovative tools and methods, as well as the close cooperation with their clients. The executives of the Department have a long experience in every aspect of the Public Administration, and they are supported, when necessary, by experts of KPMG Greece and KPMG International offices. Our team has the knowledge and contributes to the confrontation of today’s challenges, aiming at the strategic organization and the smooth operation of the country.
Our era constitutes a critical point of changes for the public sector. Offering customized services to citizens, adjusting services to the new technological environment and the intense fluctuations in the economic development of the counties, these create the need to find creative and alternative ways to resolve current issues. At the same time, a significant trend for radical changes in the Public Administration in both the European Union and Greece is observed. This is reflected in the investment of funds for the restructuring of the Public and Economic mechanisms, such as the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF), the Partnership Agreement (PA) 2021-2027, the Technical Support Instrument (TSI), etc.
The political leadership of Europe and Greece have set as their priority for the coming years, the digitization of the Public Administration through the adoption of the Digital Transformation Bible and the e-Government Code for the coming years. Moreover, the increased number of services that focus on the client-citizen presupposes the restructuring and the evolution of the Public Administration’s processes through the promotion of new reforms. Meanwhile, the values of transparency, quality, credibility and the immediacy of the public services that are offered, constitute primary need for the citizens, a trend that the political leadership should take into consideration. Finally, the government of the future focuses on innovative initiatives, flexible regulations and closer collaboration with the private sector in order to implement projects of national importance.
KPMG’s Government and Public Sector Department supports a significant number of public entities in projects of designing/ adopting reforms, projects of technical support consulting (PA, RRF, etc.), project management, smart cities, technical upgrade and system automation, design and development administrative information systems, configuration and utilization of development programs, process restructuring, strategic planning, implementation and supervision of tendering processes and administration of Public Private Partnerships (PPP), human capital, risk management, information systems security, etc.
