Government and Public Policy

The public sector constantly requires new solutions to deal with many social problems. The Division of Government and Public Policy at BB&R has an objective to contribute, through the application of tools for benchmarking and techniques of evidence-based government, with the improvement in the provision of public services in their traditional and non-traditional channels (E-Government).

Our team of consultants is trained to accompany governments in the identification and implementation of strategies to become the citizen at the center of their efforts (citizen-centric government).

For the achievement of these purposes, our Division of Government and Public Policy guides its clients to make better use of the latest technological resources and to become prepared to recognize the best international practices. In this regard, BB&R supports the public sector in the introduction of criteria for Effective and Efficient Management. To do this, our consultants advise on:

  • Strategic Planning
  • Program and project management
  • Management and evaluation of results
  • Management of the civil service
