Public Sector Management

We help governments to improve performance, to deliver public services effectively and efficiently, and to be accountable and responsive to their citizens.

Our expertise in governance and public sector covers both the national and sub-national levels, working with executives and public administrations, as well as parliament, civil society and the security and justice sectors. We support these institutions to reform structures, processes, systems and cultures, and to build capacity, awareness and understanding of their respective roles and responsibilities.

Services

54 percent of the world’s population is now urban and this is expected to increase to 66 percent by 2050. Projections show an additional 2.5 billion people will live in urban areas, with more than 90 percent of this likely to be concentrated in Asia and Africa. Managing the growing urban population and number of cities is one of the most important development challenges of the 21st century. Doing so will require innovative urban planning, management abilities and techniques, coupled with a progressive policy environment.

dkompany devises context-specific tools, mechanisms and policy inputs that help urban areas and governments

Improving the way that governments operate and deliver services to their citizens is often a key priority for donor organisations – and governments themselves. There is no easy, one-size-fits-all approach to effective reform. In many countries, poor administration, lack of capacity and weak structures of accountability present significant barriers to successful intervention. Reform policies need to account for national and local political economy and be rooted in clear objectives and strong leadership.

dkompany covers a broad spectrum of issues, from performance management systems and organisational development through to strengthening policy processes, including governance and accountability.

The link between strong public financial management and effective public administration is now firmly established. To be effective, however, processes for reforming public financial management need to be rooted in a deep understanding of local political economy, institutions and skill-sets. A shift away from input-based budgeting approaches to those focusing on outcomes can help support effective public service delivery but relies on robust evidence and an accurate understanding of available resources.

dkompany's approach is based on an in-depth understanding of the institutional and organisational needs of a functioning public sector budget process, as well as the necessary financial management and reporting systems.
