Government spending as a share of GDP has been increased every year since 2010 and is forecast to grow over the forward estimates. Australia's rapidly growing population and changing consumer expectations is creating demand for new infrastructure and government service delivery. We bring deep expertise in market analysis and policy reform to improve the appropriateness, effectiveness, and efficiency of public sector services.

By 2030, the Indo-Pacific theatre will be home to more than half of the world’s megacities, seven of the 10 largest armies and patrolled by approximately half of the world’s submarines. More than ever, the potency and capability of Australia's Defence Force is paramount. We have led a number of significant projects across air, land, and naval domains focused on defence industry capability and value for money for Federal and State governments as well as a range of private sector firms.
