PwC is chosen as a leader in Worldwide Business Consulting Services for the Public Sector, U.S. Business Consulting Services for the Federal Sector, and U.S. Business Consulting Services for State and Local Government

 

NEW YORK, October 31, 2013 PwC US today announced the firm has been selected as a leader in three new IDC MarketScape reports for the public sector.  According to IDC analysis and buyer perception, PwC is an IDC MarketScape Leader in public sector consulting worldwide, in U.S. federal sector business consulting, and in U.S. state and local business consulting.

“Being identified as a leader by IDC is an honor and a testament to both the high caliber of our government clients and the capabilities of our teams jointly addressing challenges and opportunities in making the public sector more effective and efficient,” said Scott McIntyre, PwC’s Global and U.S. Public Sector leader. “The ‘new normal’ for governments and public sector organizations is to deal with uncertainty while delivering services that are affordable, in the context of deficit-reducing budget cuts. We continue to further develop our operational, risk management and leadership capabilities to help our clients realize their business goals from strategy through execution.”

According to the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Business Consulting Services for the Public Sector 2013: “PwC's vision for the company's government and public services industry cluster is to ‘create the society of the future for the citizens of tomorrow — today — serving more trusted, sustainable, and collaborating government clients.’ The execution of this strategy focuses service offerings on trends that impact all levels of government around the globe.”

In addition, the report states: “PwC has aggressively expanded its consulting business, particularly having bolstered its capabilities in strategy, operations, and technology to strengthen its ability to help clients with large-scale transformation, from strategy through execution. This capability has been achieved through a combination of organic and inorganic investment. PwC has aimed to position itself to actively compete for a broad range of client needs, in both the front and the back office, by combining industry and business knowledge with growing technology skills and leveraging resources and expertise from across all parts of its network.”

“As governments strive to meet the demands of its citizens, changes are required in developing and supporting department-wide strategies, managing risk and compliance, and harnessing business intelligence and analytical capabilities,” added PwC’s McIntyre. “Our professionals provide hands-on experience and knowledge to support the move toward a more citizen-centric, performance-based delivery model.”

According to IDC MarketScape: US Business Consulting Services for the Federal Sector 2013: “PwC is seen as the most capable of all firms at integrating risk awareness and solutions within other consulting engagements and at providing the necessary spectrum of business consulting services. Additionally, PwC is seen as among the most capable at challenging corporate culture. PwC is perceived as better than many of its peers at directly improving a client's overall performance, helping organizations improve operational efficiency, integrating appropriate analytics into an engagement, and transferring knowledge to the client.”

According to IDC MarketScape: US Business Consulting Services for State and Local Government 2013: “PwC’s vision for its State and Local Government Practice is to ‘help state and local governments connect citizens to government, plan and drive investments, and increase efficiency to promote long term economic, environmental, social, and cultural prosperity.’ Within the execution of this strategy, PwC focuses its service offerings on the trends that impact all levels of state and local government around the nation.”

For business consulting overall, PwC is seen as most capable of all firms at helping clients reduce costs. PwC is also considered the most capable at leveraging local and global staff appropriately.
