US Public Sector and Government

For the US public sector, it’s never been more critical to deliver robust, cutting-edge services to citizens. BCG empowers government organizations—and crucially, their people—to operate in transformative ways.

At its best, the US public sector inspires, opens the door to opportunities, and enables people to reach their full potential. Public sector leaders are challenged to bring out that best in an environment where budgets are tight, crises reorder priorities, and the underlying technology sometimes shows its age. They must find new ways of working: fostering collaboration, agility, and novel approaches to serving citizens.
